How do you take this medication?
Typically, you place the tablet on your tongue and it will dissolve without requiring water. If your migraine returns after the first dose, take a second tablet after 2 hours. Do not exceed the maximum dosage over 24 hours.
What happens if I miss a dose?
If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember—but make sure there's a 2-hour gap between doses. Don't take more than the recommended amount in one day. Follow your licensed healthcare provider’s prescribing instructions carefully.
What happens if I take too much?
This is a strong medication (potent vasoconstrictor) that can make the blood vessels in your body, including the coronary arteries (those that supply blood to the heart), get narrower or constricted (vasospasm), so taking too much of this medication can increase the risk of side effects like chest pain, spasms, irregular heartbeat and high blood pressure. Follow the prescribed dosage and seek medical help right away if you think you have taken too much.
If you’ve taken too much, contact your healthcare provider or local poison control center (800-222-1222) immediately.
