Zolmitriptan Orodispersible

Zolmitriptan (Zomig) 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, Zolmitriptan 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 Zolmitriptan is enough stop a migraine.
