What is Rizatriptan?

Treatment with Rizatriptan tablets reduces swelling of blood vessels surrounding the brain. This swelling results in the headache pain of a migraine attack.

Rizatriptan tablets can be used to treat migraine attacks which may or may not be associated with visual disturbances (an aura). They are not used to prevent migraine attacks.

How do I take Rizatriptan?

Rizatriptan tablets can take longer to work if it is taken after food. Although it is better to take it on an empty stomach, you can still take it if you have eaten.

Rizatriptan tablets are used to treat migraine attacks. Take Rizatriptan Tablets as soon as possible after your migraine headache has started. Do not use it to prevent an attack.
