Patient Reviews: How Zolmitriptan Has Made a Difference


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 ordering Zolmitriptan online.


The exact causes of migraines are unknown. It is linked to a variety of factors that 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 an 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 that increase the secretion of serotonin - a hormone that 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.

How do I take Zolmitriptan?

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.

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

Take with water. It can be taken with food, however, if you are experiencing nausea or vomiting it can be taken on an empty stomach. Lying down in a dark room can help to deal with migraines.

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

Do not take more than the prescribed dose. If the current dosage does not provide adequate relief, please inform our Doctors for further advice.
