Rizact 10mg treats symptoms of migraine headaches, such as severe throbbing that may be accompanied by nausea with increased sensitivity to light and sound. It can be used to treat migraines associated with an aura (appearance of light flashes or spots). This medicine cannot prevent migraines; it is used after a headache begins. Rizatriptan is an FDA-approved drug to treat acute migraine attacks. A migraine is a headache disorder characterized by recurring headaches that are moderate to severe. Usually, it affects one-half of the head. They can be pulsating in nature and can last from 2-72 hours.
A dose of 5 mg Rizatriptan is recommended for acute migraines. An increased dose of 10 mg of the drug may be prescribed in severe cases. The doctor may recommend an additional dose if the migraine does not subside within two hours of the initial dose. However, the dosage varies depending on the patient's history and other drugs he may be taking. The maximum daily dose should not exceed 30 mg in 24 hours. Please consult your doctor about how many tablets you can consume within a day to minimize side effects.
