Headache Home > Relpax Drug Information

Available in the form of a tablet, Relpax® (eletriptan hydrobromide) is a prescription drug used to treat migraine headaches. It is not meant to be taken on a daily basis; it should be taken as soon as possible once a migraine starts. If your headache returns or does not go away, your healthcare provider may recommend taking a second dose after waiting at least two hours after the first dose.
 
To ensure your safety with Relpax, make sure your healthcare provider has up-to-date information on any other medications you are taking, including nonprescription drugs, as well as any allergies you may have, including to any drugs, foods, dyes, or preservatives. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
