User Comments:

Zomig (zolmitriptan) for Migraine: “I received a free sample of the zomig 5mg nasal spray tried it after an onset of a migraine and it intensified it 5 times and elevated my blood pressure, it turned a moderate migraine into a mega migraine within minutes…throbbing pain, neck stiffness..the sound of my own voice was too loud, had to sit in my office for 2 hours in the dark before attempting to drive home, will not try again.”

Zomig-ZMT (zolmitriptan) for Migraine: “Zomig nasal spray is a lifesaver. My migraine is gone within 20 minutes and I don’t get any side effects of oral Triptans like I used to. I used to need to go to bed for the rest of the day when taking a triptan, but the nasal spray bypasses the stomach and I don’t have those weird side effects anymore! Love it!”

For Migraine: “Takes away severity or migraine within a few hours. Side effects are sensitivity to tastes (sweet and sour in particular) and sometimes a strange sensation to back of neck. I hate the taste of it and cannot let tablet melt on tongue as makes me gag.”

Zomig (zolmitriptan) for Migraine: “I’m not gonna lie, the side effects can seriously suck… but they’re very temporary. I get a rancid taste in my mouth as well as increased heart rate (which, for someone with a preexisting heart condition, is not ideal) HOWEVER these only happen for maybe a half hour after taking the spray, and for the first time in over ten years I actually have something that not only halts the migraine in its tracks (whether I’m in the aura stage or even in the beginning of a serious attack) but let’s me actually continue on with work and not have to debilitate me to the point of needing to go to bed for the rest of the day. I take this in combination with Zofran, and I feel like a completely new person within an hour of taking it. This is the best.”

Zomig (zolmitriptan) for Migraine: “I have suffered with migraines for 20 years & without Zomig I would have missed out on many things in life. There are side effects such as spaced out feeling, dry mouth, increased urine which only last few hours after taking medication. But would rather have minor side effects & live my life without always being in pain.”

Zomig (zolmitriptan) for Migraine: “I take 2.5mg and have taken it for 14 years. It does stop the pain in 15 minutes but I feel like I have the flu after and lately a lot of bladder pain, urinary infections every 6 months and urinating a lot with loss of urinary control. I am 65 years old and have had migraines forever.Does anyone experience bladder issues? Is it because i have been on it so long and it is hurting the bladder?”
