Acute treatment of the headache phase of migraine attacks with or without aura.
For this indication, competent medicine agencies globally authorize below treatments:
2.5 - 5 mg
From 2.5 To 5 mg once every day
Frovatriptan should be taken as early as possible after the onset of a migraine attack but it is also effective when taken at a later stage. Frovatriptan should not be used prophylactically.
If a patient does not respond to the first dose of frovatriptan, a second dose should not be taken for the same attack, since no benefit has been shown.
Frovatriptan may be used for subsequent migraine attacks.
The recommended dose of frovatriptan is 2.5 mg.
If the migraine recurs after initial relief, a second dose may be taken, providing there is an interval of at least 2 hours between the two doses.
The total daily dose should not exceed 5 mg per day.
The frovatriptan tablets should be swallowed whole with water.
