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:
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 - a hormone which can help reduce inflammation. It also blocks pain signals from being relayed to the brain.
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.
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 10 mg.

Many sufferers can also experience symptoms such as nausea and sickness. You can take medications such as Prochlorperazine which can help to reduce this.
