Eletriptan - Dosage and How to Use

How should Eletriptan be used?

  • ​Follow your doctor’s instructions as to how many tablets to take when the attack starts.
  • If your migraine improves but comes back, wait at least 2 hours before taking the next dose. Do not take more than 80mg per day.
  • Do not use eletriptan too frequently (limit to 10 days of use per month), as it can cause medication overuse headache (migraine/headache may worsen). Inform your doctor if you need to take eletriptan to treat more than 3 headaches in a 1 month period.
  • You may take this medication with or without food.
  • If the tablets did not give you enough help with your migraine, consult your doctor.
