DO YOU HAVE A COMPLETE TREATMENT PLAN FOR YOUR PATIENTS?

Migraines can happen at any time, even if patients take medication to prevent them1,2

  • As part of a complete treatment plan, make sure that if patients need preventive medication, they also have an acute treatment for breakthrough migraines

A non-oral route of administration may be beneficial

  • Some patients have difficulty swallowing oral medication3
  • Nausea and vomiting can make it difficult to keep oral medication down3,4
    • 73% of adult patients and 86.3% of adolescent patients report nausea5,6
    • 29% of adult patients and 47.7% of adolescent patients report vomiting5,6
  • Migraine-associated gastric stasis can retard drug absorption3,4,7

Limitations of Use:

Use ZOMIG Nasal Spray only after a clear diagnosis of migraine has been established. If a patient has no response to ZOMIG Nasal Spray treatment for the first migraine attack, reconsider the diagnosis of migraine before ZOMIG Nasal Spray is administered to treat any subsequent attacks. ZOMIG Nasal Spray is not indicated for the prevention of migraine attacks. Safety and effectiveness of ZOMIG Nasal Spray have not been established for cluster headache. ZOMIG Nasal Spray is not recommended in patients with moderate to severe hepatic impairment.

  • History of stroke, transient ischemic attack, or hemiplegic or basilar migraine
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Ischemic bowel disease
  • Uncontrolled hypertension
  • Recent (within 24 hours) use of another 5-HT1 agonist (eg, another triptan), or ergot-type medication
  • Current or recent (past 2 weeks) use of monoamine oxidase (MAO)-A inhibitor
  • Known hypersensitivity to ZOMIG, ZOMIG-ZMT, or ZOMIG Nasal Spray

Warnings and Precautions:

  • Myocardial ischemia, myocardial infarction, and Prinzmetal’s Angina: Perform a cardiovascular evaluation in triptan-naïve patients who have multiple cardiovascular risk factors and if satisfactory, consider administrating the first ZOMIG Nasal Spray dose in a medically supervised setting
  • Arrhythmias: Discontinue ZOMIG Nasal Spray if these occur
  • Sensations of tightness, pain, pressure in the chest, and heaviness in the precordium, throat, neck, and jaw commonly occur after treatment with 5-HT1 agonists like ZOMIG Nasal Spray and are usually non-cardiac in origin. Perform a cardiac evaluation if these patients are at cardiac risk
  • Cerebrovascular events: Cerebral hemorrhage, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and stroke have occurred in patients treated with 5-HT1 agonists, some resulting in fatalities. Discontinue ZOMIG Nasal Spray if any of these events occur
  • ZOMIG Nasal Spray may cause non-coronary vasospastic reactions, such as peripheral vascular ischemia, gastrointestinal vascular ischemia and infarction, splenic infarction, and Raynaud’s syndrome. Discontinue ZOMIG Nasal Spray if any of these events occur
  • Transient and permanent blindness and significant partial vision loss have been reported with the use of 5-HT1 agonists
  • Overuse of acute migraine drugs may lead to exacerbation of headache. Detoxification may be necessary
  • Serotonin syndrome may occur with triptans, including ZOMIG Nasal Spray, particularly during co-administration with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), tricyclic antidepressants, and MAO inhibitors. Discontinue ZOMIG Nasal Spray if serotonin syndrome is suspected
  • Increase in blood pressure
