Zolmist Inhaler (Zolmitriptan) is a type of drug known as a triptan, which is used to treat nausea, vomiting and light sensitivity occurring as a result of migraines. It works by helping swollen blood vessels in the brain to return to their normal size. This drug will not prevent future migraines from occurring.
Zolmist Inhaler (Zolmitriptan) should be sprayed directly into the nostril. You should use it at the first sign of a migraine. Patients are usually instructed to administer 1 spray into 1 nostril. If you notice no improvement, you should not use any more of this medication. Instead, you should consult your physician. However, if your symptoms are partially relieved or come back, your physician may approve the use of a second dose after 2 hours. Do not exceed 2 doses in any 24 hour period. Some patients, especially those with heart complaints, may be required to take the first dose at a physician's office.
