What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.
Please Note: Amlotriptan should not be used continuously to prevent or reduce the number of attacks you experience. If your headache comes back after your initial dose, you may take a second dose any time after 2 hours of administering the first dose. If you have no pain relief after the first dose, do not take a second dose without first consulting with your doctor. Do not take more than 25mg of Almotriptan in a 24-hour period

Almotriptan 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. Almotriptan belongs to a class of drugs known as triptans. It affects a certain natural substance (serotonin) that narrows blood vessels in the brain. It may also relieve pain by affecting certain nerves in the brain. Almotriptan does not prevent future migraines or lessen how often you get migraine attacks.
How to Use Axert
Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking almotriptan and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. If you have a higher risk for heart problems (see Precautions), your doctor may perform a heart exam before you start taking almotriptan. He/she may also direct you to use your first dose of Axert in the office/clinic to monitor for serious side effects (such as chest pain). Talk to your doctor for details. Take Axert by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor at the first sign of a migraine. Do not take almotriptan to prevent a migraine. If there is no improvement in your symptoms, do not take more doses of Axert before talking to your doctor. If your symptoms are only partly relieved, or if your headache comes back, you may take a second dose after 2 hours. Do not take more than 2 doses in a 24-hour period. The Dosage of Axert is based on your medical condition, response to treatment, and other medications you may be taking. Be sure to tell your doctor and pharmacist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). 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 Axert more often, or if the medication is not working as well, or if your headaches get worse.
See also How to Use section. Before taking almotriptan, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to other triptan migraine drugs; or if you have any other allergies. Axert may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Axert, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,blood circulation problems (for example, in your legs, arms/hands, or stomach), certain types of headaches (hemiplegic or basilar migraine), heart problems (such as chest pain, irregular heartbeat, previous heart attack), stroke or "mini-stroke" (transient ischemic attack), kidney disease, liver disease. Certain conditions can increase your risk for heart problems. Tell your doctor if you have any of these conditions,diabetes, family history of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, overweight, smoker, postmenopausal (women), age more than 40 years (men). Axert may make you dizzy or drowsy. Alcohol or marijuana (cannabis) can make you more dizzy or drowsy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs alertness until you can do it safely. Limit alcoholic beverages. Talk to your doctor if you are using marijuana (cannabis). Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). The risk of heart disease, liver disease, and high blood pressure increases with age. Older adults may be more sensitive to the side effects of Axert, especially increased blood pressure and heart problems. During pregnancy, Axert should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is unknown if Axert passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval. The risk of serotonin syndrome/toxicity increases if you are also taking other drugs that increase serotonin. Examples include street drugs such as MDMA/"ecstasy," St. John's wort, certain antidepressants (including SSRIs such as fluoxetine/paroxetine, SNRIs such as duloxetine/venlafaxine), among others. The risk of serotonin syndrome/toxicity may be more likely when you start or increase the dose of these drugs. If you also take any ergotamine medication (such as dihydroergotamine) or other "triptan" drugs (such as zolmitriptan, rizatriptan), you will need to separate your almotriptan dose from your dose of these other medications to lessen the chance of serious side effects. Ask your doctor how long you should wait between your doses of these drugs.
