About Rizatriptan

Its primary function is to alleviate the headache pain associated with a migraine attack in adults. One of its key actions is reducing the swelling of blood vessels surrounding the brain, which is a common factor contributing to the pain experienced during a migraine episode. By targeting this swelling, Rizatriptan helps mitigate the intensity and duration of migraine symptoms, providing relief for those affected by this debilitating condition.

Before taking Rizatriptan, it’s important to discuss with your doctor or pharmacist, especially if you have certain risk factors or medical conditions. This includes having risk factors for heart disease such as high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, family history of heart disease, being a man over 40, or a post-menopausal woman. Additionally, if you have kidney or liver issues, a specific heart rhythm problem (bundle branch block), or any allergies, it’s crucial to inform your healthcare provider. Pay attention if your headache is accompanied by symptoms like dizziness, difficulty walking, lack of coordination, or weakness in limbs. Avoid taking Rizatriptan if you use herbal preparations containing St. John’s wort, or if you’ve experienced allergic reactions like swelling of the face, lips, tongue, and/or throat (angioedema) which may lead to difficulty breathing or swallowing. Inform your doctor if you’re taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) for depression, as well as if you’ve had short-lived symptoms such as chest pain and tightness. For full details refer to the Patient Information Leaflet.

The potential effects of Rizatriptan on an unborn baby when used by pregnant women are currently unknown. Therefore, if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, think you might be pregnant, or are planning to conceive, it’s essential to consult your doctor or pharmacist before taking this medication. They can provide personalized advice based on your individual circumstances. Additionally, it’s recommended to avoid breastfeeding for 24 hours after receiving treatment with Rizatriptan. These precautions help ensure the safety of both the mother and the baby during pregnancy and breastfeeding while using this medication.

 If you find you are unable to take Rizatriptan visit our   Migraine Products & Treatments  Homepage where we have a variety of other options such as Nurofen. You can also visit our Women’s Health  Homepage where we have plenty of products to assist women with their pregnancy.

While Rizatriptan can effectively treat migraine attacks, it may also lead to side effects, although not everyone experiences them. It’s important to be aware of potential reactions, particularly those indicating allergic responses, serotonin syndrome, heart issues, or stroke, and promptly inform your doctor if such symptoms arise. Additionally, notify your doctor if you notice any signs of allergic reactions, such as rash or itching, after taking Rizatriptan. In adult studies, the most commonly reported side effects include dizziness, sleepiness, and tiredness. Other common effects, which may affect up to 1 in 10 individuals, encompass tingling sensations, headache, decreased skin sensitivity, mental dullness, tremors, insomnia, palpitations, flushing, throat discomfort, nausea, dry mouth, vomiting, diarrhea, indigestion, feelings of heaviness or stiffness in body parts, neck pain, and abdominal or chest pain. Less frequently occurring side effects, affecting up to 1 in 100 people, involve a bad taste in the mouth, unsteadiness while walking, dizziness, blurred vision, tremors, and fainting. Monitoring for these reactions and promptly consulting with your healthcare provider can ensure appropriate management of any potential side effects while using Rizatriptan. For full details refer to the Patient Information Leaflet.
