If you suffer from migraine headaches, your healthcare provider may prescribe Zomig. This medication is not designed to prevent migraines, but it can help to relieve migraine symptoms as they occur. Zomig works by narrowing blood vessels in the head that become dilated during a migraine. The medicine comes as a tablet, a nasal spray, and an orally disintegrating tablet that quickly dissolves in the mouth. As with any medication, there are possible side effects, including dizziness, abnormal sensations (such as tingling), and nausea.
What Is Zomig?Zomig® (zolmitriptan) is a prescription medication that is used to treat migraine headaches. It will not help to prevent migraines, but it can help to treat a migraine that has already started.
In addition to Zomig tablets, Zomig® Nasal Spray and Zomig ZMT® (orally disintegrating tablets that dissolve in the mouth) are also available.
