What is Amerge used for?
Amerge is a medicine for curing migraine headaches. It will only treat an already active migraine headache and will not prevent another one from occurring. Hence, Amerge will offer the best results if it is taken as soon as migraine symptoms are suspected.
Also known as naratriptan hydrochloride, Amerge is effective at what it is designed to do. Belonging to a class of migraine medicines called 5-HT agonists or triptans, Amerge narrows the blood vessels in the brain to stop a throbbing headache. When there is a migraine headache, some blood vessels widen abnormally, triggering unbearable symptoms.
As soon as Amerge is swallowed, it constricts the widened vessels to their normal state. This action helps to reduce migraine symptoms. According to studies, Amerge can stop migraine-related pain in just four hours of taking the tablet.
How is Amerge dosage taken?
Your doctor will consider 3 factors when determining the best Amerge dosage for you. These are: the type of medicines you are taking, the diseases you are treating and age. If you are allergic to any ingredient in Amerge, your doctor might not prescribe it. If they do prescribe it, the likely initial dosage is likely to be 1mg or 2.5mg.
If your migraine symptoms return or if you don’t get full relief from your dose, you can have another after 4 hours. However, you should not take an amount larger than 5mg in 24 hours.
If you have mild to moderate renal impairment, don’t take more than 2.5mg per day. Start with a lower dose of 1mg and then increase it to 2.5mg depending on how well your system tolerates it. Those with severe renal failure should not take Amerge. As well, those with severe hepatic impairment should avoid Amerge.
On the other hand, mild to moderate hepatic impairment can be controlled with a dose of 1mg to 2.5mg per day. Take your tablet with a full glass of water or other liquid. Avoid using this medicine to prevent a migraine attack as it will not work that way. Instead, take it when you notice symptoms of a migraine attack.
