Zolmist Nasal Spray
Zolmist Nasal Spray 5 mg 0.7 ml
Zolmist Nasal Spray is used for acute treatment of migraine, where there is a clear diagnosis of migraine, to relieve acute migraine attacks with or without aura, which is the perception of visual disturbances and/or smells and are usually the first sign that a migraine headache is on its way.
Zolmist Nasal Spray should only be used for treatment of a migraine attack to relieve headache and other symptoms, including nausea and sensitivity to light, but should not be used as prophylaxis to prevent migraine headaches from occurring.
Zolmist Nasal Spray is not intended for the treatment of other types of headache, such as cluster headache, which is a very painful type of headache that occurs in regular cycles or clusters, interspersed with periods of remission. Zolmist Nasal Spray is not intended for the management of haemiplegic migraine, which can also cause temporary weakness of one side of the body and paralysis; or basilar migraine, which is another form of migraine and is caused by an arterial spasm at the base of the brain restricting blood flow to the brain.
Zolmist nasal spray contains the active ingredient Zolmitriptan 5mg/ml in aqueous solution, a serotonin agonist that is used to treat migraine attack.
The most commonly reported side effects when taking Zolmist Nasal Spray include, disorder/discomfort of nasal cavity, tightness of the throat, unusual taste, dry mouth, nausea, paraesthesia (tingling, pricking, or numbness of the skin), dizziness, somnolence, asthenia (loss of strength), headache.
You can use Zolmist Nasal Spray at any stage of a migraine attack but it is more effective if taken as soon as possible after the first signs of headache and/or aura. You should take one spray of Zolmist Nasal Spray into one nostril and should feel relief from symptoms within 15 minutes, but you can repeat with another spray if the headache returns after two hours. You can take another dose if you have another migraine attack in the next 24 hours, provided you do not take more than 10mg in a 24 hour period.
