Pharmacist Tips

  • To avoid headaches associated with medication overuse with triptans, limit triptan use to less than 2 days per week and overall less than 7 days per month.
  • It is not approved to help other types of headaches. If you experience headaches that are not of migraine-nature, take other over-the-counter medications such as ibuprofen for relief.
  • Cardiovascular reactions may occur spontaneously but be aware of symptoms such as chest pain/tightness, shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, and slurred speech. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek immediate medical attention.
  • This medication has the potential to interact with many medications. Alert your doctor when you start taking new prescription and non-prescription medications so they can evaluate if this medicaiton is still appropriate for you.
