What do zolmitriptan tablets do?
ZOLMITRIPTAN (Zomig(R)) helps to relieve a migraine attack that starts with or without aura (a peculiar feeling or visual disturbance that warns you of an attack).

What should my health care professional know before I take zolmitriptan?
They need to know if you have any of these conditions:

  • bowel disease or colitis
  • diabetes
  • headaches that are different from your usual migraine
  • heart or blood vessel disease, angina (chest pain), or previous heart attack
  • family history of heart disease
  • high blood pressure

    How should I take this medicine?
    Take zolmitriptan tablets by mouth. Zomig rapimelt tablets are designed to melt on the tongue in your saliva without the need for a drink of water. They may be particularly useful for people who feel sick or vomit during their migraine attack and are unable to drink, as well as for people who can’t swallow conventional tablets. The tablets usually provide significant relief from the migraine within an hour of taking them. If there is no improvement at all after the first dose, do not take a second dose without talking to your prescriber or health care professional. Do not take your medicine more often than directed.
