How does Rizatriptan work?

The active ingredient in Rizatriptan is rizatriptan. Rizatriptan works by reducing the swelling of the blood vessels surrounding the brain. The swelling is what causes the headache pain that occurs during a migraine attack.

How do you take Rizatriptan?

Take Rizatriptan as soon as possible after a migraine attack starts. Do not use it to prevent a migraine attack.

 

The recommended dose is 10 mg. Take one tablet as soon as you feel a migraine attack coming on. Rizatriptan tablets should be taken by mouth and swallowed whole with liquid.

How effective is Rizatriptan?

Rizatriptan takes longer to work when taken recently after a meal. This is because the food in your stomach can delay the absorption of the medicine.

 

Rizatriptan is an effective way of treating migraines. In addition to treating migraines, it is worth considering some of the triggers that may be causing them for you. For information on migraine triggers, please see our migraine triggers page.
