Frovatriptan is indicated for the management of migraine headaches, characterized by severe throbbing pain, often accompanied by symptoms such as nausea and sensitivity to sound and light. Belonging to the class of medications known as selective serotonin receptor agonists, frovatriptan exerts its therapeutic effects through multiple mechanisms. It facilitates the constriction of blood vessels surrounding the brain, interrupts the transmission of pain signals to the brain, and inhibits the release of certain natural substances responsible for eliciting pain, nausea, and other migraine-related symptoms.

Uses and Dosage

Frovatriptan is administered in tablet form for oral consumption. It should be taken promptly at the initial indication of a migraine headache.

In case the symptoms improve after the first dose but subsequently return after a span of 2 hours or beyond, a second tablet may be considered. However, if the symptoms do not ameliorate after the initial administration, do not take an additional tablet without consulting your healthcare provider.

The daily intake of frovatriptan should not exceed three tablets within a 24-hour timeframe. Abide by the prescribed dosing regimen precisely and avoid altering the dosage or frequency without the guidance of your doctor.

For the first dose of frovatriptan, you should administer it within a medical facility, such as a doctor’s office, where professional monitoring can be conducted to detect any potential serious reactions.

Contact your healthcare provider if your headaches fail to improve or if they occur more frequently following the administration of frovatriptan.

Using frovatriptan more frequently or for an extended duration beyond the recommended period may exacerbate headaches or increase their frequency. Do not use frovatriptan or any other headache medications for more than 10 days per month.

Should you require frovatriptan to manage more than four headaches within a month, promptly consult your doctor.
