Rizatriptan belongs to a class of drugs known as triptans, a group of medicines used to treat the symptoms of migraine headaches. The latter can manifest itself as severe, throbbing headaches which are sometimes accompanied by sensitivity to light and/or sound, neck stiffness, and nausea (feeling sick). If you are known to suffer from migraine, doctors at Medzino can issue a prescription for Rizatriptan 5mg or 10mg.
Migraine is a common and debilitating brain disorder that affects approximately 3%-22% of females and 1%-16% of males. Triptans such as Rizatriptan work against migraine by narrowing blood vessels (constriction) in the brainstem, the area located at the base of the brain, and reducing the swelling of the blood vessels, which causes headache pain. In other words, constriction helps to stop pain signals to be sent to the brain, hereby blocking the release of substances that cause pain, nausea, and other symptoms. Rizatriptan is not suitable as a preventive medicine for chronic migraine. Rather, it should be taken after a migraine attack has already begun and the symptoms have started showing. Rizatriptan is ineffective in preventing future migraines or reducing the frequency of migraine attacks you get.
The active ingredient in Rizatriptan is rizatriptan benzoate at a concentration of 5mg or 10mg.
Rizatriptan also contains the following inactive ingredients: lactose monohydrate, microcrystalline cellulose, pregelatinized starch, ferric oxide (red), and magnesium stearate
Please note: Inactive ingredients may vary between different manufacturers.
The dose of Rizatriptan varies from patient to patient. Use Rizatriptan exactly as prescribed by your doctor, and do not auto-medicate without consulting your doctor, or exceed the recommended dosage.
The recommended starting dose of Rizatriptan is either 5mg or 10mg. You may take a second dose two hours after the first dose if your headache returns. The maximum recommended dose within a period of 24h is 30mg. Do not exceed this.
Do not take this medication if your headache is not a migraine. For efficient migraine relief, take Rizatriptan as soon as the headache pain begins. If you get warning signals of a coming migraine, only use the drug when the headache starts.
Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water without crushing, breaking, or chewing it.
