What is Rizatriptan, and how does it work?

Rizatriptan is a potent medication specifically designed for the relief of migraine symptoms. Classified as a selective serotonin receptor agonist, it plays a crucial role in managing the debilitating effects often associated with migraines and headaches.

Targeting migraine symptoms effectively

Rizatriptan is particularly effective in addressing the common symptoms of migraines, which include:

  • Pain: It helps in reducing the severity of the pain
  • Nausea: The medication works to alleviate feelings of nausea
  • Visual Disturbances: It aids in mitigating visual problems that often accompany migraines

Mode of action

Rizatriptan is unique in its approach to treating migraines. It becomes effective only when a migraine attack is in progress, focusing on:

  • Blocking Pain Signals: The medication prevents pain signals from reaching the brain
  • Narrowing Blood Vessels: By constricting the blood vessels in the brain, Rizatriptan tablets stop pain signals from being transmitted
  • Inhibiting Symptom-Causing Substances: It blocks the release of substances that cause migraine symptoms like throbbing pain and nausea

Important considerations

  • Usage Limitation: It is important to note that Rizatriptan is not a preventive treatment. It does not work to prevent the onset of migraines or reduce the frequency of migraine attacks
  • Consultation with a Doctor: Those who experience migraines frequently are advised to consult a doctor. A healthcare professional can recommend lifestyle changes and other measures to potentially reduce the frequency of migraines

Rizatriptan migraine medication alternatives

Rizatriptan tablets are an effective form of migraine pain relief. However, other medications may be more suitable for individuals based on their needs.

To determine which migraine medication is suited to your needs, you’ll need to complete a quick online assessment that will inform our pharmacist's decision when determining which medication is best. Alternative medications include:

  • Sumatriptan Tablets: Renowned for their effectiveness, they are among the top choices for migraine pain relief. They are the generic form of the well-known Imigran brand
  • Zolmitriptan Tablets: These tablets offer significant relief for acute migraine headaches. While highly effective in treating symptoms, they do not function as a preventative measure for future migraine episodes
  • Zomig Tablets 2.5mg: Featuring Zolmitriptan as the active ingredient, this medication is adept at treating migraines, irrespective of whether an aura accompanies them
  • Almotriptan Tablets: Provide relief from migraine-associated symptoms such as headaches, sensitivity to light, and nausea. They work by constricting the brain's blood vessels

Rizatriptan Over The Counter Alternatives

When looking for non-prescription options for migraine management, there are effective alternatives to Rizatriptan tablets. Consulting a healthcare professional is crucial, especially if Rizatriptan is part of your current regimen. Here are two popular OTC choices:

  • Paracetamol: A common choice for treating a range of pains, including headaches. For migraine relief, it's typically recommended to take two tablets every four hours. Caution is advised not to exceed four doses in a 24-hour period to avoid potential overuse
  • Ibuprofen: Effective in managing mild to moderate pain, including migraines. It can be used alongside paracetamol for improved symptom relief. This combination is often beneficial for more comprehensive management of migraine symptoms

Rizatriptan and pregnancy

Rizatriptan is not recommended for pregnant women. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding or are trying to conceive, speak to a doctor about other alternatives. If you are sexually active, ensure that you are on adequate birth control - speak to a doctor if you are unsure.

Can I drive when taking Rizatriptan?

As drowsiness is a common side effect of Rizatriptan, you shouldn’t drive or operate heavy machinery when under the influence of Rizatriptan. As side effects can differ every time you take this medicine, it is a good idea to avoid driving altogether whilst taking Rizatriptan.

Can I drink alcohol when I've taken a Rizatriptan tablet?

Alcohol does not impact Rizatriptan directly, but it may cause the headache to worsen or give you a new headache. Therefore, it is not recommended that you drink while experiencing a migraine or taking Rizatriptan. Drinking may also cause you to experience more drowsiness, a common side effect of Rizatriptan.

Rizatriptan vs Sumatriptan, what's the difference?
