naratriptan is available as 1 mg and 2.5 mg tablet.

What is naratriptan used for?

What is naratriptan used for?

naratriptan is a serotonin (5-HT 1B/1D ) receptor agonist (triptan) indicated for
the acute treatment of migraine with or without aura in adults.

How does naratriptan work?

How does naratriptan work?

naratriptan is a triptan. It works on receptors in your brain and nervous system that respond to serotonin, a natural chemical in your body that’s thought to play a role in migraines.

When it attaches to the serotonin receptors in the brain, naratriptan tightens the blood vessels in the brain and lessens blood vessel swelling that can cause migraine pain. The medication also stops the release of other pain signals through your nervous system. This helps relieve migraine pain.

 

How do I take naratriptan?

naratriptan is typically taken as 1 mg or 2.5 mg by mouth once as a single dose for migraine pain. You can take another dose 4 hours after the first dose if your migraine does not go away. You should not take more than 5 mg in a day.
Your dose might differ if you have kidney or liver damage.
