Naratriptan, the medicinal component in Amerge, is in a class of medications called selective serotonin receptor agonists. Also known as triptans, this class of drugs helps relieve the severe pain of migraine headaches.
Your doctor has prescribed Amerge because triptans are a relatively new class of drugs that work differently than traditional analgesics and are effective in relieving severe migraine pain.
Amerge works by narrowing blood vessels around the brain, stopping the transmission of pain signals, and stopping the release of substances that cause other symptoms like nausea.
Your doctor will prescribe the proper strength for you. Take one tablet orally, either 1mg or 2.5mg, with water as soon as you feel the headache start to develop, not before. Amerge is not to be used to prevent or reduce the number of attacks you experience.
These may not be all the side effects of Amerge 2.5mg.
Amerge is contraindicated for people who have have severe liver or kidney disease, heart problems, high blood pressure, or have taken another triptan with in the last 24 hours. Speak to your doctor before taking this medication if you are pregnant or may be pregnant.
Talk to your doctor if you have the following risk factors: blood vessel problems, history of heart attack, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or seizures. If you are taking an SSRI medication for depression, do not take Amerge.
Keep Amerge at a temperature below 30°C.
