  • What MIGARD is and what it is used for

    MIGARD 2.5 mg tablets contain frovatriptan, an anti-migraine treatment belonging to the class of triptans (5-hydroxytryptamine (5HT1) selective receptor agonists). MIGARD 2.5 mg tablets is a medicine for the treatment of the headache phase of a migraine attack with or without aura (a temporary strange feeling before a migraine, which varies from person to person but can affect, for example, vision, smell, hearing). MIGARD 2.5 mg tablets should not be used to prevent a migraine attack. MIGARD is used to treat migraine attacks in adults.
  • Check if it’s a migraine

    A migraine tends to be a very bad headache with a throbbing pain on 1 side of the head.

    You may get other symptoms just before a migraine, such as:

    • Feeling very tired and yawning a lot
    • Craving certain foods for feeling thirsty
    • Changes in your mood
    • A stiff neck
    • Peeing more

    You may also get warning signs you’re about to have a migraine, such as:

    • Problems with your sight, such as seeing zigzag lines or flashing lights
    • Numbness or a tingling that feels like pins and needles
    • Feeling dizzy
    • Difficulty speaking
  • How to take MIGARD

    Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. Check with your doctor if you are not sure. Take MIGARD 2.5 mg tablets as early as possible after the onset of the migraine headache. Swallow one tablet whole with water.

    If the first dose does not give you any relief, do not take a second dose during the same attack. You can use MIGARD 2.5 mg tablet for any following attacks.

    If you obtain relief after the first dose, but later on suffer from the re-appearance of a headache within 24 hours, you can take a second dose provided that at least 2 hours have elapsed between the 2 doses.

    Do not exceed the maximum dose of 5 mg (two tablets) in 24 hours.

    Excessive use (repeated use over several consecutive days) of MIGARD 2.5 mg tablets constitutes incorrect use of this medicine and may cause an increase in side effects and lead to chronic daily headaches requiring the temporary discontinuation of treatment. Consult your doctor if you start having too frequent or daily headaches as you may be suffering from medication overuse headache.

    Use in children and adolescents

    MIGARD should not be used in patients under 18 years of age.

    Elderly

    As there is little experience in patients over 65 years, the use of MIGARD is not recommended in patients in this age group.
