Rizatriptan Orodispersible 10mg 3 Pack

Rizatriptan belongs to a class of medicines called selective serotonin 5-HT1B / 1D receptor agonists known as "triptans" for short.

Triptans are very effective in stopping a migraine from reaching its full intensity.

When taken at the onset of a migraine, Rizatriptan can effectively stop a migraine from developing and thus prevent any disruption to the patients life beyond that point.

The orodispersible tablets are particularly helpful in patients who experience migraines along with nausea and vomitting. They melt in the mouth and patients are less likely to vomit after using them. 

Usually a single dose of Rizatriptan is enough stop a migraine.

How to use for migraine:- Take ONE Rizatriptan 10mg OD tablet as soon as possible after your migraine headache has started. Do not use it to prevent an attack.

The usual dose is 10 mg.

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.
