How to use for migraine:- Take ONE Rizatriptan tablet as soon as possible after your migraine headache has started. Do not use it to prevent an attack.

If migraine returns within 24 hours

In some patients, migraine symptoms can return within a 24-hour period. If your migraine does return you can take an additional dose of Rizatriptan. You should always wait at least 2 hours between doses.

If after 2 hours you still have a migraine

If you do not respond to the first dose of Rizatriptan during an attack, you should not take a second dose of Rizatriptan for treatment of the same attack. It is still likely, however, that you will respond to Rizatriptan during the next attack.

Do not take more than 2 doses of Rizatriptan in a 24-hour period, (for example, do not take more than two 10-mg or 5 mg orodispersible tablets or tablets in a 24-hour period). You should always wait at least 2 hours between doses.

If your condition worsens, seek medical attention.

If you take more Rizatriptan than you should, talk to your doctor or pharmacist straight away. Take the medicine pack with you.

Signs of over-dosage can include dizziness, drowsiness, vomiting, fainting and slow heart rate.
