Relpax is the brand name of a medication used for the acute treatment of migraine with or without aura. Relpax contains the generic ingredient eletriptan and is part of the ‘triptan’ group of medicines.
Doctors prescribe Relpax to be taken orally by patients at the onset of a migraine attack to relieve the associated painful symptoms.
Although the cause of migraines is still not completely understood, it is thought that the widening of blood vessels in the brain plays a role. Relpax works by stimulating receptors called serotonin (or 5HT) receptors in the brain, which narrows the blood vessels and so relieves the migraine pain.
For adults, the dosage is 20mg or 40mg, depending on your doctor’s instructions. Take Relpax orally with water. If your first dose is 20mg and your headache returns, you could take a second dose of 20mg after two hours. Do not take more than 40mg in any 24-hour period.
These may not be all the side effects of Relpax 40mg.
If you have severe liver disease, uncontrolled blood pressure, heart disease or have had a stroke, do not use Relpax. If you have taken other ‘triptans’ in the last 24 hours, you should not take this medication.
It is very important to tell you doctor about all the other medicines that you may be taking because certain drugs have interactions with this medication. If you have risk factors for heart disease (such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, smoking, strong family history of heart disease, or you are over 40), you should tell your doctor before taking Relpax.
Store Relpax at room temperature, safely away from children. Protect from direct heat, humidity and light.
A migraine is a severe, painful headache that can occur with symptoms such as flashes of light, nausea, vomiting, blind spots, tingling in the arms and legs and increased sensitivity to light and sound. Warning symptoms known as aura may occur before or with the headache. The severe pain can last for hours or even days and can have a significant impact on the quality of lives for patients and their families. In the united States, nearly one in four households have someone who has migraines. Migraine is most common between the ages of 25 and 55 years. Usually, sufferers have a migraine attack once or twice a month. Three times as many women than men suffer from migraine in adulthood. The causes of migraines are poorly understood. Medications can help treat some migraines and make them less painful.
