Almotriptan is a prescription migraine treatment. It reduces symptoms of migraine attacks, such as headaches, nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound.
You can buy Almotriptan online from euroClinix if your doctor has diagnosed you with migraine.
It is not known exactly what causes migraine attacks, but it is thought they occur when blood vessels in the head widen. This can lead to a variety of symptoms, the most well-known being a very severe throbbing headache.
Almotriptan is a type of drug called a triptan, or serotonin agonist. It is thought to work by binding to serotonin receptors, causing blood vessels in the brain to narrow, returning them to normal.
This relieves painful headache symptoms, and can also help with feeling sick, being sick, and sensory disturbances.
Take one 12.5mg tablet with water. It is recommended that you take Almotriptan as soon as you have developed a migraine headache, but it will still be effective if taken at any stage of the attack.
If your symptoms do not improve soon after taking the medication, do not take another tablet for the same attack. However, if your migraine improves but you experience another attack on the same day, you can take another dose, ensuring you leave 2 hours between the first and second dose.
Over-the-counter painkillers, such as ibuprofen, aspirin, and paracetamol, are safe to use alongside Almotriptan unless your doctor has advised against this
Do not exceed a daily dose of two 12.5mg tablets in one 24 hour period. If you take more than prescribed, seek immediate medical attention.
You should always take medication exactly as your doctor has directed.
