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 Zomig.

How does Zomig work?

Zomig is in a class of medicines known as 5HT1B- and 5HT1D-receptor agonists, which are also referred to as triptans. They work by binding to these receptors and reducing the swelling of the blood vessel walls, which become dilated around the brain, triggering a migraine. The constriction of these blood vessels via the Zomig treatment helps to ease the headache as well as the other migraine related symptoms such as nausea.

How long does Zomig take to work?

Once you have consumed a dose of Zomig, you will begin to experience the effects of the medication within 60 minutes. 

You can take Zomig at any time once the migraine symptoms have appeared; however, experts often advise people to take Zomig as soon as the signs appear. Similarly, Zomig may work quicker on an empty stomach. But it can still be taken with food. 

You should stop taking the medication if Zomig does not impact your symptoms. Inform your pharmacist or doctor of the lack of improvement, and they might prescribe an alternative treatment.

Why choose Zomig?

If you suffer from migraine headaches that prevent you from carrying out normal day-to-day activities, Zomig can be an effective form of treatment. The medication is often prescribed when over-the-counter painkillers have been unsuccessful, as it can improve symptoms or even eliminate them completely.

One of the benefits of Zomig is that it can be taken at any time during a migraine attack and still be effective, whereas other forms of migraine treatment need to be taken as early as possible to have a major effect on reducing the pain and/or symptoms. If you are out without your medication, then this is important to factor in as you can have peace of mind that no matter how long it takes you to take your tablet, the treatment will work as well as if it had been taken from the onset of the attack.

Can I buy Zomig online?

You can buy Zomig online after you have completed a short online questionnaire, the answers from which will be assessed by a Click Pharmacy doctor to confirm whether this is the right medication for your situation. If not, then our experts, Jana Abelovska & Leonard Jones, will recommend a better or safer option.

How effective Is Zomig?

In some severe migraine cases, a second dose can be required to fully relieve the pain of the headache, but in studies, the effectiveness of Zomig was undeniable, with positive results achieved in 90% of patients.

The 5mg dose seemed to achieve a higher result than the 2.5mg option in the more severe cases, but the necessary dosage for your situation, based on severity and regularity of your migraine attacks, amongst other factors, can be assessed by the doctor before you purchase your first pack.

It is worth bearing in mind that the medication is designed to be taken when a migraine has already started and that taking it does not prevent future attacks or reduce the number of attacks you have overall.

What dose should I choose?

Zomig comes in tablet form, and the dose you require is based on a number of variables, including the severity of your attacks, your response to the medication, your age and any other medication you may be taking. For exact dosage instructions, read the patient information form that is provided with your prescription, and you can also speak to your GP or one of our doctors here at Click Pharmacy.

How should I take Zomig?

For best results, take one tablet with a glass of water, with or without food, at the first signs of a migraine attack. The medication can also be taken after an attack has begun.

Side effects

Zomig may cause some temporary side effects, such as nausea, vomiting, dry mouth, drowsiness, weakness and heaviness or tightness around the chest or neck. Although very rare, there are also some more serious side effects associated with the medication.

Zomig is not for long-term use. If you use it for longer than intended, you may experience severe side effects, such as:

  • Heart problems, such as irregular heartbeat or a heart attack
  • Stroke 
  • Bleeding in the brain 
  • Raynaud’s disease (changes in the colour or feeling of your fingers or toes)
  • Complications with the blood vessel or circulation, particularly in your legs or feet
  • High blood pressure or hypertension

A complete list of potential side effects can be found in the patient information leaflet that comes with your prescription.

Can breastfeeding mothers use Zomig Tablets?

Evidence suggests that Zomig Tablets are transferred into breastmilk. You should refrain from taking this medication if you are pregnant.

Can I drink alcohol while using Zomig Tablets?

It is advised to refrain from drinking alcohol while using Zomig Tablets. This is because the effects of alcohol have the potential to worsen side effects and symptoms.
