Relpax contains the generic ingredient eletriptan, which belongs to a class of medications called serotonin (or 5HT) agonists. This type of medicine is also commonly known as a 'triptan'. Relpax is used specifically to relieve migraine attacks.
Doctors prescribe Relpax to migraine sufferers in order to relieve the pain and other associated symptoms of a migraine attack.
It is thought that the dilation of blood vessels in the brain causes the intense pain of migraine headaches. Relpax works by causing the blood vessels in the brain to narrow, thereby relieving the pain of a migraine headache.
The usual adult dosage is 20mg or 40mg, as recommended by your doctor. The dose should be taken orally with water as soon as your migraine appears, but it may be taken at any time during your migraine headache. The maximum dose in any 24-hour period is 40mg.
These may not be all the side effects of Relpax 20mg.
Do not use this medication if you have uncontrolled or severe high blood pressure, heart disease, severe liver disease or if you have had a stroke.
Before taking Relpax, discuss your medical history with your doctor especially if you have rapid or irregular heartbeats, angina, or heart disease. Tell your doctor about all the medications you are taking, as some medications interact with Relpax.
Keep your medicine in a safe place where children cannot reach it. Store your medication between 15ºC and 30ºC, away from direct heat, light and moisture.
A migraine is an intense throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, usually on just one side of the head. It's often accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. There are two categories of migraines, those with aura (classical migraines) and those without aura (common migraines). An “aura” refers to a patient’s sensations, which usually occur within thirty minutes before the actual onset of a migraine, such as trouble thinking, seeing flashing lights or unusual lines, tingling or numbness in the face or hands or unusual sense of smell or taste. Migraine attacks can cause significant pain for hours to days and can be so severe that the pain is disabling. The right medicines, combined with self-help remedies and lifestyle changes, may help.
