Note: You must complete a short online consultation so that our doctor can ensure that the treatment is suitable for you. The above pricing should only be used as a reference. The final decision to issue this treatment lies with the prescribing doctor.

What is Almotriptan?

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.

How does Almotriptan work?

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.

How do I take Almotriptan?

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.

What are the possible side effects of Almotriptan?

All medications come with the risk of side effects.

The most common side effects of Almotriptan include:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • tiredness
  • sleepiness
  • dizziness

For a complete list of side effects, read the prescription information leaflet. If you experience any side effects that concern you, contact your doctor for further advice.
