About Rizatriptan

Rizatriptan is a prescription-only medication used to alleviate the moderate to severe throbbing pain on one side of the head associated with migraines. It can be used to treat these headaches when they occur with or without an aura which is described by sufferers as flashing lights, lines or blurred vision. It also treats other symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to sound and light.

The information provided in the summary table is for reference only. It is important to consult a qualified healthcare professional before starting any migraine treatment, including Rizatriptan.

Why choose Rizatriptan?

Rizatriptan can provide prompt pain relief to people suffering with mild to severe migraine headaches who have found that over-the-counter medications such as paracetamol do not offer effective enough pain relief.

Many people find that after taking Rizatriptan, they also find relief from some of the other debilitating symptoms associated with migraine, such as vomiting and nausea, allowing them to return to normal activities more quickly.

It has also been shown in studies to be well tolerated meaning that there have been little or no side effects, and any side effect symptoms which do occur are short-lived and minimal.

How effective is Rizatriptan?

Research has found that Rizatriptan is more effective at achieving pain relief within two hours of taking a dose than other triptans, including sumatriptan.

It has been shown to help migraine sufferers quickly improve their quality of life after an attack by providing not only fast and effective relief from the pain of a migraine but also easing the other difficult symptoms associated with these debilitating headaches, including nausea, sickness and sensitivity to light and sound.

How does Rizatriptan work?

Migraine headaches are thought to be caused by enlarged blood vessels that surround the brain. Rizatriptan is part of a family of drugs called triptans which are selective agents for 5-HT 1B and 5-HT 1D. Triptans bind themselves to these receptors, which, in turn, narrows the dilated blood vessels and positively affects certain natural substances in the brain, which are thought to trigger migraine symptoms such as sensitivity to sound and light. The result of using Rizatriptan is that your pain and disruptive migraine symptoms can ease or disappear within 2 hours.

What alternatives are there for Rizatriptan?

Migraines are complex, and there are several different treatments available for them. It is vital to note that each patient will respond differently to every medicine. The results may vary. So, if Rizatriptan does not work for you, consider taking the following: 

Zomig (Zolmitriptan) 
Nasal Spray (Triptan)
● Zomig Rapimelt Orally Disintegrating Tablets (Triptan)
Sumatriptan Tablets (Triptan)
Imigran (Sumatriptan) 
● Ibuprofen
● Aspirin


What dose should I choose?

Rizatriptan is available in a tablet form and your doctor’s recommended dose will be based on a number of factors, including:

  • your age
  • your medical condition
  • what other medications you may be taking
  • how you respond to treatment

It is generally recommended that if your pain comes back or gets worse two hours after the first dose, a patient can take a second dose. It is important not to take any more than two doses (or up to 30mg) within a 24-hour period, or more than ten doses within 30 days unless recommended by your doctor.

For more information on dosages, read the patient instructions that come with the medication. You can also consult your doctor or contact one of our healthcare professionals for more details.

How should I take Rizatriptan?

Swallow one tablet whole with a glass of water on a full or empty stomach, although it is worth noting that it may take longer for the medication to work if it is taken with food.

For best results, take the medication once the pain has begun rather than during a period of warning signs such as an aura. The sooner you take your dose once the headache has kicked in, the faster it will work and the more effective it will be.

SIde effects

Side effects of Rizatriptan are often mild but may include

  • drowsiness
  • dizziness
  • stomach pains
  • vomiting
  • diarrhoea
  • muscle pain
  • cramps
  • hot flushes
  • dry mouth

While rare, there are also some more serious side effects associated with the medication. If these symptoms are severe or persist, seek medical assistance immediately.

For more information, read the patient leaflet that comes with the medication. Our experts here at Click Pharmacy are also on hand to offer any further information or advice.

Who should not use Rizatriptan?

First, discuss your pre-existing conditions with your primary physician. It would help if you also inform your doctor about any other ongoing treatment(s) you may be on. It is best not to use Rizatriptan if any of the following apply:

  • If you have or have had a severe liver or kidney disease.
  • If you are over 65 years old.
  • If you are a heavy smoker
  • If you are a man over 40 or a woman past the menopause period (If you take Rizatriptan, you may be at extra risk of developing heart disease and may need additional tests done)
  • If you frequently experience headaches, vertigo, or weakness in a limb.
  • If you have had a heart attack, stroke, or mini-strokes (TIAs) in the past.
  • If you have or have had problems with poor circulation (peripheral vascular disease).
  • If you have or have had angina (heart pain on exertion).
  • If you have or have had an irregular heartbeat or ECG changes.
  • If you have or have had uncontrolled high blood pressure.
  • If you have a history of fits or seizures.

Lastly, avoid using Rizatriptan if you are allergic to other triptans.

Can I take Rizatriptan Tablets on an empty stomach?

It is advised to take Rizatriptan Tablets after consuming a well balanced meal. This is to prevent the chances of experiencing nausea and similar side effects.

Can pregnant or breastfeeding women use Rizatriptan Tablets?

Although there is no evidence to suggest that taking Rizatriptan Tablets can cause harm to pregnant or breastfeeding women, it is advised to consult with a professional before using them. This is to ensure no harm is caused to both born or unborn babies.

Does using Rizatriptan Tablets affect my ability to drive or operate machinery safely?

After using Rizatriptan Tablets you may experience drowsiness and blurred vision. If you experience any of these side effects, you should avoid participating in activities such as driving or operating machinery.
