Reyvow Lasmiditan Succinate 30 tablets,50/100 mg
Lasmiditan is used to treat migraines. It helps to relieve headache, pain, and other migraine symptoms (including nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light/sound). Prompt treatment helps you return to your normal routine and may decrease your need for other pain medications. Lasmiditan belongs to a class of drugs known as ditans. It affects a certain natural substance (serotonin) that causes narrowing of blood vessels in the brain.
Lasmiditan does not prevent future migraines or lessen how often you get migraine attacks.
How to use:
Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start taking lasmiditan and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually at the first sign of a migraine. The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Do not take more than one dose of this medication in a 24-hour period. Tell your doctor right away if your symptoms do not get better or if they get worse. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs alertness for at least 8 hours after taking this medication.
If you are using drugs for migraine attacks on 10 or more days each month, the drugs may actually make your headaches worse (medication overuse headache). Do not use medications more often or for longer than directed. Tell your doctor if you need to use this medication more often, or if the medication is not working as well, or if your headaches get worse.
Drowsiness, dizziness, tiredness, or numbness/tingling of the skin or mouth may occur. If any of these effects last or get worse, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
