How do I use Zomig?

You should use Zomig exactly as directed by your doctor. Typically, this will be one dose at the first sign of a migraine. If the symptoms improve after you take Zomig but return after two hours or more, you may take a second dose. However, if your symptoms do not improve immediately after you take Zomig, don't take a second dose before talking with your doctor.

Your doctor will tell you how many tablets you can take within a 24-hour period. Talk with your doctor if you need to take Zomig to treat more than three headaches in one month. Zomig is available as a tablet to be swallowed, a tablet that dissolves in the mouth and a nasal spray.

Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully. Do not increase or decrease doses or take doses more frequently than prescribed.
