Naramig is beneficial for patients who can get recurrent migraines following 1st and 2nd doses of the quick acting triptans (sumatriptan, rizatriptan or zolmitriptan). These are slower acting but last longer and tend to have lower chance of side effects. The recommended dose of Naramig to treat a migraine attack is 2.5 mg. If symptoms persist or return within 24 hours, a second dose may be taken after 2 hours of the initial dose. In those patients who respond, significant efficacy is apparent within 1 hour of dosing. No more than two doses should be taken in any 24-hour period.
You may not experience any side effect at all however the most common side effects reported include a warm-hot sensation, tightness, tingling, flushing, drowsiness, and feelings of heaviness or pressure in areas such as the face, arms, legs and occasionally the chest. The way side-effects affect different people can vary between the different triptans. So, if one causes unpleasant side-effects, a switch to a different one may be fine.
If you develop intense chest pain or sensations, you should consult a doctor immediately or go directly to the nearest accident and emergency department.
