Frova (frovatriptan) is prescription drug used to treat a migraine headache in adults. It should only be used after a diagnosis of migraine has been determined by a doctor. If you take Frova to treat a migraine headache and you do not experience any relief, speak to you doctor, as another diagnosis might be possible. Frova is not intended as a migraine prevention drug. It can be used on patients with or without aura. It is not intended for other types of headaches.

If you have questions about your Frova prescription, consult the product information or speak to your doctor.
Migraines are intense, disruptive headaches that cause a great deal of pain to one or sometimes both sides of the head. This pain is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light, sound, and smell. Before a migraine attack, some patients experience aura, which is described as a visual phenomenon that can include flashes of light, tingling, dark spots, and wavy lines.
Prescription drugs like Frova and preventative medication can help you experience fewer and less painful migraines, however, there are also some lifestyle changes you can make to reduce the frequency and length of your migraines. Speak to your doctor about taking a proactive approach to your migraines.
Some medications may interact with Frova. Before you take Frova, tell you doctor about all the medication you take, including all herbal supplements and vitamins. Do not take more than your intended dose, and do not take Frova for another type of headache. If you do not feel better after you take a Frova tablet, do not take another one. Do not take Frova unless it was prescribed to you. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, nursing, or planning on becoming pregnant.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
