If you suffer from migraine headaches, your healthcare provider may prescribe almotriptan to help relieve migraine symptoms. Almotriptan works by causing blood vessels in the head to return to their normal state after dilating during a migraine. A few possible side effects of almotriptan include tingling sensations, dry mouth, and nausea. Among the factors that may affect the almotriptan dosage your healthcare provider prescribes are how you respond to almotriptan and other medical conditions you may have.
