In a clinical study, Zomig-ZMT Orally Disintegrating Tablets 2.5 mg provided migraine headache relief at 2 hours for many patients. Your results may vary.
Zomig-ZMT migraine headache response*
In a clinical study, 231 adult patients were treated with Zomig-ZMT Orally Disintegrating Tablets 2.5 mg and 239 adult patients were treated with a placebo (sugar pill) for moderate or severe migraine headaches. The graph below shows the percentage of patients with moderate or severe headache who improved to mild headache or no pain 2 hours after treatment.
*Headache response was defined as a moderate or severe headache improving to mild headache or no pain.
- In another study, 329 adult patients took Zomig-ZMT 5 mg and 341 adult patients took a placebo (sugar pill) for moderate or severe migraine headache. At 2 hours, 59% of those taking Zomig-ZMT 5 mg and 31% of those taking placebo had improvement to mild headache or no pain.
- In the only study that directly compared Zomig 2.5 mg and Zomig 5 mg, the conventional tablet formulation was used. This study found that there was little added benefit from the larger 5-mg dose, but that side effects were generally increased at 5 mg. Patients should, therefore, be started on a dose 2.5 mg or lower. It is not recommended that you break Zomig-ZMT Orally Disintegrating Tablets. A dose lower than 2.5 mg can be achieved by using the conventional Tablets formulation and manually breaking the scored 2.5 mg tablet in half. If you are not sure of this, ask your doctor. Please be certain that you take Zomig exactly as prescribed by your doctor.
