What is Zomig, and what is it used for?

Zomig tablets are a migraine medication that provides effective relief from migraine attacks.

It is the branded version of the generic drug Zolmitriptan. Zolmitriptan is part of the triptan group, which includes drugs that are selective serotonin receptor agonists.

Zomig is used to alleviate the symptoms of migraines and provide fast-acting pain relief. Effective in relieving migraines with aura or migraines without aura. 

Zomig is available in tablet form or as a nasal spray.

Zomig migraine medication alternatives

Whereas Zomig tablets are a great migraine relief medication, there are other options available. During your online consultation with one of our pharmacists, they’ll ensure that you are prescribed a migraine medication that meets your needs.

Alternative medications include:

  • Sumatriptan Tablets: One of the most popular migraine pain relief medications on the market. Sumatriptan is the generic version of Imigran
  • Zolmitriptan Tablets: These tablets are effective in treating acute migraine headaches, although they do not prevent future episodes
  • Rizatriptan Tablets: Useful for alleviating migraines and their accompanying symptoms, such as nausea, pain, and visual disturbances. For more information, take a look at our guide that compares Rizatriptan and Sumatriptan
  • Almotriptan Tablets: These tablets aid in reducing migraine-related headaches, light sensitivity, and nausea by narrowing the blood vessels in the brain

Zomig Over The Counter Alternatives

When considering over-the-counter (OTC) alternatives to Zomig for migraine relief, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional, especially if you're already taking Zomig tablets. Two common OTC options include:

  • Paracetamol: Often used for a variety of ailments, including headaches. For migraines, the typical recommendation is to take two tablets every four hours. However, it's crucial not to exceed four doses within a 24-hour period to avoid potential overuse or toxicity
  • Ibuprofen: This is effective for managing mild to moderate pain, including migraines. Ibuprofen can be taken in conjunction with paracetamol for enhanced symptom management. This combination can be particularly helpful in providing more comprehensive relief from migraine symptoms

Can I Buy Zomig Tablets Over the Counter?

In the UK, you cannot buy Zomig tablets over the counter.

Zomig is a prescription-only treatment, so a doctor will need to assess the suitability of this medication for you before issuing a prescription. Once you have received your prescription, you can buy Zomig tablets online or from your local pharmacy.

Can I drink alcohol whilst taking Zomig?

Alcohol doesn’t affect how Zomig works. However, you shouldn’t drink when you have a migraine. That’s because alcohol can make the symptoms of your migraine worse and may intensify any possible side effects such as nausea and drowsiness.

Is it safe to take Zomig tablets whilst pregnant?

The effects of Zomig during pregnancy are not fully established. Studies suggest its risk is similar to the general population, but conclusive evidence is lacking. Pregnant women should consult their doctor before using Zomig. For breastfeeding mothers, Zomig is considered generally safe due to low levels of breast milk, but a doctor's consultation is still recommended.

Zomig vs Sumatriptan, what's the difference?

Zomig and Sumatriptan, sold as Imigran in the UK, are triptan-class migraine medicines. They treat migraines by stimulating brain serotonin receptors and narrowing blood vessels. Available as tablets or nasal sprays, their effectiveness is similar, though individual response may vary. Consult a doctor to determine the best option for your needs.

Zomig vs Maxalt, key differences

Zomig and Maxalt, the UK brand for Rizatriptan, are both in the triptan class of migraine medications. They operate similarly by narrowing blood vessels to reduce migraine pain. They're similarly priced in the UK and share common side effects like dizziness, drowsiness, and nausea. Zomig typically takes up to an hour to work, while Maxalt can be effective in as little as 30 minutes. Dosage differs: Zomig is available in 1.25 mg, 2.5 mg, or 5 mg doses, whereas Maxalt comes in 5mg or 10 mg doses.

What are the side effects of Zomig?

Common side effects include dizziness, drowsiness, a mild headache, and nausea. Less common but more serious side effects may also occur.

Who should not take Zomig?

Individuals with a history of heart problems, uncontrolled high blood pressure, or those who have had a stroke or certain types of migraines should avoid Zomig. It's also not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women without a doctor's consultation.
