Basic Information On Zomig
Zomig is recommended for treating acute migraine in adults. The migraine may be with or without aura (flashes of light in front of the eyes). Migraine is characterized by throbbing and intense pain, generally on one side of the head and which may keep shifting sides. Some people may suffer in the forehead also. Migraine headache is caused by enlargement of the blood vessels surrounding those nerve fibers, curling around the arteries in the brain. The enlargement of the blood vessels prompts the nerve fiber to release chemicals, which cause the inflammation, which further worsens the enlargement in a cascading effect. The migraine activates the sympathetic nervous system setting off vomiting, nausea or diarrhea. The sympathetic syndrome also delays passing of stomach contents into the small intestines. As a corollary, oral medication also takes time to enter the small intestine and provides relief. Zomig drug disintegrates orally to provide faster relief.
