General Information on Zomig Nasal Spray
Zomig Nasal Spray is indicated in the treatment of acute migraine headaches. The drug does not prevent migraine attacks. It should not be used to treat other types of headaches.
Zolmitriptan, the main active ingredient in Zomig Nasal Spray, belongs to a group of medicines known as selective serotonin (5HT1) agonists. Serotonin, a naturally occurring chemical in the brain, acts on the blood vessels in the brain and narrows them, which provides relief from the pain. Zolmitriptan imitates the action of Serotonin and induces the serotonin receptors in the brain which causes the blood vessels to constrict and thus provides relief from pain.
