Zomig contains zolmitriptan which belongs to a class of drugs called triptans (serotonin receptor agonists).
Zomig is used to treat migraine headaches. While they do not prevent migraines, this medication relieves the often excruciating pain. To optimize the results, patients should take Zomig as soon as they feel the migraine developing. Zomig can also help with the associated symptoms like nausea and vomiting.
Triptans are a relatively new class of drugs, first introduced in the 1990s. They work in a unique way by narrowing the blood vessels in the head. Triptans affect serotonin levels in the brain which cause the blood vessels to shrink and also stops the release of other pain-producing chemicals. Triptans have been shown to stop more than 80% of migraine headaches in two hours.
