Zomig

What Is Zomig?

Zomig is a popular migraine treatment, which belongs to a class of medications known as triptans. Triptans are not the same as pain killers, instead they work by reversing the changes in the brain which can cause migraines. By reversing these changes, Zomig works to treat the cause of the migraine as well as reducing the symptoms.

How does Zomig Work?

Zomig works by stimulating receptors called serotonin (or 5HT) receptors that are found in the brain, which causes the blood vessels in the brain to contract. The narrowing of the blood vessels reverses the widening, which is thought to be one of the causes of migraines.

Migraine Information

What is a Migraine?

A migraine is a common condition, which affects millions of people across the US. A migraine is characterized by a severe throbbing headache. Pain is usually felt at the front or side of the head. Approximately 18% of women and 7% of men experience migraines. While most sufferers have attacks, once or twice a month, more than 4 million adults have chronic daily migraine, with at least 15 migraine days per month. This means you’ll find someone with this condition in one out of every four US households (Migraine Research Foundation).

Side Effects

Side Effects

Like any medicines, Zomig can cause side effects, but not everybody may experience them. Some symptoms may be caused by the migraine itself.

Common side effects of Zomig include pain, heaviness, pressure or tightness in the chest, throat or other parts of the body, or unusual sensations, including numbness, tingling and warmth or cold. These effects may be intense but generally pass quickly. Some people also experience nausea, dry mouth and drowsiness. These side effects are usually mild and improve on their own.

Alternatives

Alternatives

Pain-Killers

Over the counter pain-killers such as acetaminophen, aspirin or other pain relievers may help to reduce the symptoms of migraines. They are most effective when taken as soon as the migraine starts.

Triptans

Triptans are medications that can help to reverse the changes in the brain that may cause migraines. ZipHealth offers a wide range of triptan migraine medication.

Choosing Generic vs Branded Zomig

X

Generic medicines contain the same active ingredient and are equally effective and equivalent as the branded products but are available at a lower price. Generic manufacturers have to demonstrate that they are medically identical to the branded product before they can be sold - i.e. they offer the same quality, strength, stability and effectiveness.
