What is Almotriptan?

Almotriptan is used for the treatment of migraine and different other types of headaches. It is a member of a class of drugs called the Triptans. It is not used for prophylactic purposes and has excellent efficacy for migraine.

How does it work?

This drug is taken with or without food through the oral route. Once absorbed into the blood, it reaches the brain and blocks a substance called serotonin, which is responsible for narrowing blood vessels in the brain. It also influences various nerves involved in the pain and to relieve the migraine. 

Is Almotriptan for me?

This drug is for you if you have;

  • Migraine
  • Other symptoms of migraine, e.g., sensitivity to sound/ light, nausea, vomiting etc.

It is used to treat the acute attacks of migraine and doesn't prevent the future onset of migraine

Which foods do I need to avoid during a migraine?

The Almotriptan helps you too, but you must avoid following foods that can trigger migraines.

  •  Excessive coffee
  • Red wine
  • Old cheese
  • Chocolate
  • Citrus 

Can Almotriptan be taken daily?

This drug should be used only on the prescription of the doctor. As it doesn't prevent migraines, using it for an extra duration will increase the chances of side effects.

Which is better? Almotriptan or Sumatriptan?

Both belong to the same class of drugs. Both also have comparable efficacy, as a study has found that the effectiveness of Almotriptan was 58% after 2 hours of use and that of Sumatriptan was 57.3%. However, for headaches, Sumatriptan seems to be more effective.

Can Almotriptan cause weight disturbances?

Almotriptan and other Triptans lower the appetite and hence can reduce weight. So, alongside the migraine, you will also get relief from obesity.

Can migraine be cured permanently?

Although various treatments (e.g., Almotriptan) help relieve the symptoms, there is currently no permanent cure for migraine. You can use multiple treatments after consulting the doctor.

Does Almotriptan help with tension headaches?

Yes. The Triptans, e.g., Almotriptan, are also good for episodic tension-related headaches. They are, in fact, better than opioids because the opioids can cause dependency.
