PLACEBO CHALLENGE:

A 30-day placebo challenge run-in period was implemented. Patients treated a single migraine with 1 dose of single-blind placebo. Only patients who demonstrated a lack of response to placebo during the run-in period were randomized.3

*The recommended starting dose of ZOMIG Nasal Spray is 2.5 mg.3

From a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled study of ZOMIG Nasal Spray 5 mg (n=229) and 2.5 mg (n=81) vs placebo (n=253) for the acute treatment of moderate or severe migraines in pediatric patients (ages 12-17 years).

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
