What is Zomig Nasal Spray used for?
Zomig nasal spray (zolmitriptan) is used for the treatment of migraines. It can help relieve pain, headaches, sensitivity to light/sound, nausea, and vomiting among other migraine symptoms. Prompt treatment with Zomig nasal spray helps you to return to your normal routine and can decrease your need for other pain medications. Zomig nasal spray belongs to a class of medications called triptans. It effects serotonin (a natural substance) that causes the blood vessels in the brain to narrow. It can also relieve pain by affecting certain nerves within the brain. Zomig nasal spray doesn’t prevent future migraines or decrease the frequency with which you get migraine attacks.
