Dosing for Zomig Tablets
The usual starting dosage of regular Zomig tablets for migraine headaches is Zomig 2.5 mg or less during a migraine. To get a dose of less than 2.5 mg, a 2.5 mg tablet will need to be cut in half. Zomig tablets should be swallowed with a drink of water or another beverage.
Dosing for Zomig ZMT
The usual starting dose of Zomig ZMT® tablets for migraine headaches is Zomig ZMT 2.5 mg during a migraine. It is not recommended that you try to cut the Zomig ZMT tablets in half (as they are delicate and often crumble).
When opening the Zomig ZMT tablets, peel back the foil lining of the blister. Do not try to push the tablet through the foil, as it is delicate and may crumble. Place the tablet on the tongue, where it will quickly dissolve and be swallowed with saliva (you do not need to take a drink of water).
