Zomig


Zomig (Zolmitriptan) is a fast-acting nasal spray for treating migraines, with a similar effectiveness and mechanism of action as Sumatriptan.

Zomig (Zolmitriptan) 5mg Nasal Spray

 

What is Zolmitriptan?

Zolmitriptan (Zomig) is used to treat migraine and belongs to a group of medicines called triptans (5-HT, receptor agonists). Migraines, usually identified by a throbbing at the front or on the side of the head, can affect a large number of people on a daily basis, and the root cause can often be difficult to interpret. Much like Sumatriptan, Zolmitriptan can also provide a fast-acting relief to the symptoms of more severe migraines, which can include nausea, sensitivity to light and sound and stiffness in the neck and shoulder area. It is available as a nasal spray and in orodispersible form, for those who have trouble taking tablets.

What is a migraine?

A migraine will usually start as a headache with throbbing at the front or on the side of the head. As the migraine develops, the location of the pain may change and become more intense. Depending on the severity, the symptoms may include; nausea and vomiting, sensitive to light, visual problems, sensitive to smells, reduced concentration levels, sweating, abdominal pain, feeling generally unwell and occasionally leading to diarrhoea. The symptoms associated with a migraine can vary between individuals and in severe cases can last a couple of days.

How the medication works

Migraine symptoms may be triggered by a temporary swelling of blood vessels in the head due to a temporary chemical imbalance in the body. Zolmitriptan counters this chemical imbalance by stimulating receptors in the brain that result in a reduction in the swelling of the blood vessels, thereby relieving the intense pain felt during a migraine.

Choosing Strength

Initially start with a lower strength of 2.5mg. The dose may be doubled if necessary. If you feel that this dose is not sufficient in controlling your symptoms, you may require the 5 dose of Zolmitriptan. If you are unsure, please contact the Patient Support Team on 0208 123 0703 or at help@expresspharmacy.co.uk .

How to use it

Please consult the enclosed patient information leaflet before using Zolmitriptan.

The following dosage guide should be followed:

Spray 5mg (1 dose of 0.1ml) into one nostril as soon as possible after onset of migraine symptoms. Repeat dose after no less than 2 hours if the migraine persists or reoccurs.

Maximum daily dosage for Zolmitriptan is 10 milligrams

Side Effects

The most common side effects associated with the usage of Zolmitriptan include; fatigue, dizziness, flushing, sensations of heaviness and short term increases in blood pressure (transient).

Further information on the side effects of Zolmitriptan can be found in the patient information leaflet.
