Zolmitriptan is a migraine medication belonging to the Triptans class. It works as a 5HT1b and 5HT1d  receptor agonist in the blood vessels. This induces the release of serotonin from the brain which reduces inflammation and constricts blood vessels. It is important to be properly diagnosed by your regular GP before buying.


The exact causes of Migraines are unknown. It is linked to a variety of factors which can trigger migraines. These can include:

  • Stress
  • Tiredness/ Lack of sleep
  • Diet – cheese, fizzy drinks, salty foods, sweeteners such as aspartame
  • Alcohol – especially wine
  • Bright or strobe-like lights
  • Strong smells such as perfume, smoke
  • Endocrine changes – common for women to experience migraines due to increase in oestrogen especially during menstruation
  • Certain medication such as Hormonal Contraceptives

Keeping a diary of what you eat and exposure to daily occurrences can help to ascertain potential triggers of your migraine. This can help to reduce the risk of inducing migraines. It is important to ensure you sleep and eat well as this can help to reduce the risk. Exercise in moderation can be helpful, however too much strenuous exercise can also trigger migraines.

Zolmitriptan can help to reduce the effect and pain when migraines occur. It acts on 5HT receptors in the brain which increases the secretion of serotonin reducing inflammation. It also blocks pain transmission of nerves reducing pain.

However, It does not prevent migraines from occurring.  It is primarily used to treat acute migraine or cluster headaches. It is not indicated in the treatment for Hemiplegic, Retinal or Basilar type migraines.

How to take

Take one tablet at the onset of an attack. If little to no effect is apparent after an hour, another dose can be taken. Do not exceed the daily dose of 10mg.

  • Take One tablet at onset of attack. If little to no effect after one hour, another dose can be taken. Do not take another dose after this. Maximum daily dose is 10mg
