How Does Zolmitriptan Work? Migraines cause nausea, light sensitivity, and intense throbbing pain in the head. Some patients get a pre-migraine warning, which is known as an aura. The aura involves a blurred or distorted vision. Although a migraine's cause is unclear, the throbbing pain is associated with dilation of blood vessels in the brain. Zolmitriptan belongs to a group of medicines called serotonin agonists. The remedy works by stimulating the brain's serotonin receptors. The effect is that the affected blood vessels narrow, relieving the associated pain. Zolmitriptan, like other triptans, works best when taken at the onset of an attack.

You have heart problems. You have or previously had a stroke. Consult your doctor if you take any other migraines like migraleve, or other triptan medicines before using Zolmitriptan.
How to Take Zolmitriptan Swallow one tablet with water. You can take a second tablet if the migraine is still present after two hours. Do not use more than two doses in one day. The maximum daily dose is 10 mg.
