Rizact is used for treating migraine headaches with or without aura (eg, flashing lights, wavy lines, dark spots). It should not be used to prevent migraines or to treat cluster headaches. It works by narrowing dilated blood vessels in the brain, relieving migraine headaches.
Use rizatriptan as directed by your doctor. Take rizatriptan by mouth with or without food. Take rizatriptan with plenty of fluid.
It is best to take a dose of rizatriptan as soon as you notice symptoms of a migraine attack. If your symptoms do not improve after the first dose, do not take a second dose for the same attack. Contact your doctor.
Take exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If your symptoms do not improve after the first dose, do not take a second dose for the same attack. Contact your doctor.
Do not take more than the amount prescribed by your doctor in a 24-hour period. If you miss a dose of rizatriptan and you still have a headache, follow your doctor's dosing instructions. Contact your doctor right away if you are unsure of what to do if you miss a dose. Do not take rizatriptan more often than prescribed. Do not take 2 doses at once.
