This medication contains the medicinal ingredient zolmitriptan which is one type of triptan or 5-HT1 agonist. Other triptans are sumatriptan and frovatriptan.
Zomig is available in several formats and treats the pain of migraine headaches. Your doctor may have prescribed the nasal spray format because some patients find it works faster and is easier to use. The nasal spray comes in two strengths, 2.5mg and 5mg.
This medication does not prevent migraines. Zomig is used after you feel the first signs of a migraine headache. Migraines are thought to be caused by dilated blood vessels from changes in the brain chemical levels. Like other triptans, Zomig works by affecting serotonin levels, which constrict blood vessels, and thereby reduce the pain. Triptans work differently than non-prescription pain relievers.

Migraine headaches are triggered when the trigeminal nerve releases chemicals that cause irritation and swelling of the blood vessels in the head. The pain is usually felt around the eyes and temples but could spread elsewhere. A migraine headache is usually diagnosed when you experience at least five moderate to severe headaches, which persist up to 72 hours with one-sided pain. Other symptoms are light sensitivity and nausea.
