Almotan (almotriptan 12.5 mg) general information

What is Almotan used for?

Almotan tablets 12.5mg are used to treat the headache phase of acute migraine attacks with or without aura, which is the perception of visual disturbances and/or smells and are usually the first sign that a migraine headache is on its way.

Almotan tablets 12.5mg should only be used for treatment of a migraine attack to relieve headache and other symptoms, including nausea and sensitivity to light, but they should not be used to prevent migraine headaches from occurring.

You can use Almotan tablets 12.5mg at any stage of a migraine attack but it is more effective if taken as soon as possible after the first signs of headache and/or aura.

Almotan tablets 12.5mg are not intended for the treatment of other types of headache, such as cluster headache, which is a very painful type of headache that occurs in regular cycles or clusters, interspersed with periods of remission.

Almotan 12.5 is not intended for the management of haemiplegic migraine, which can also cause temporary weakness of one side of the body and paralysis; or basilar migraine, which is another form of migraine and is caused by an arterial spasm at the base of the brain restricting blood flow to the brain.

How does Almotan/Almotriptan 12.5 mg work?

Almotan tablets 12.5mg contain almotriptan, which is a member of the group of drugs called tryptans and is a serotonin agonist that mimics the action of serotonin (also known as 5-hydroxytryptamine, or 5-HT).

Serotonin is a brain chemical that is involved in control of mood, pain sensation, sexual behaviour, sleep, as well as dilation (widening) and constriction (narrowing) of blood vessels.

Migraine is thought to be caused by dilatation or widening of blood vessels in the head due to one of many migraine triggers, which in turn stimulates nearby sensory nerves so that you feel pain.

Almotriptan in Almotan tablets 12.5mg stimulates the serotonin receptors (5-HT1) in these expanded blood vessels making them narrow again (vasoconstriction) and inhibits trigeminal nerve activity, relieving pain.

Both actions are thought to contribute to the anti-migraine action of almotriptan and relieve headache and other symptoms of a migraine attack.
