Frova (frovatriptan) is prescribed to relieve the pain and other symptoms of migraines. Frovatriptan belongs to the group of medications known as selective serotonin receptor agonists, commonly known as triptans. Frova is effective in alleviating the acute symptoms of a migraine attack.
During a migraine attack, serotonin levels in the brain can drop sharply, leading to dilation of blood vessels in the head. This triggers the release of inflammatory neuropeptides that cause inflammation and pain, which contributes to the throbbing pain characteristic of migraines. Triptans bind to 5-HT1B and 5-HT1D serotonin receptors in the brain and mimic the action of serotonin. The binding to the receptors causes constriction of blood vessels in the brain, which helps to counteract the excessive dilation that occurs during a migraine.

Dosage

Only take Frova as prescribed. Frova will only treat a headache once it has already begun. Frova does not prevent migraines or reduce the number of attacks. The usual dose is one Frova tablet with water. If the pain returns after receding, one more tablet can be taken at least two hours after the first one. Not more than 3 Frova 2.5 mg tablets should be taken in one day.

Read the information leaflet that comes with the medication.

Most people who use Frova do not experience any negative side effects. Doctors prescribe Frova because they assess that the benefits that such treatment yields outweighs any likely unwanted effects.

If after taking Frova a sudden allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) occurs, with symptoms like swelling of the face, tongue or throat making it difficult to breathe or swallow, or there is wheezing, hives, rash, blistering or peeling of the skin, call a doctor or 911 right away, or go to an emergency room immediately.

Other reactions require immediate attention from a doctor, they include severe chest pain, shortness of breath, irregular heartbeats; seizure; pressure in the chest or pain spreading to the jaw or shoulder; agitation or hallucinations; loss of coordination, fainting, or problems with balance; blurred vision; sudden numbness or weakness (especially on one side of the body); or slurred speech.

Some of the side effects that have been reported include:

  • flushing, warmth, redness, or tingling under the skin
  • sensations of numbness or prickling under the skin
  • weakness
  • nausea
  • dry mouth
  • drowsiness
  • dizziness
  • mild headache, not like a migraine
  • feeling too warm or too cold
  • bone or joint pain.

Not all side effects are listed here. If these or other unlisted symptoms persist or worsen, consult a healthcare provider or pharmacist.

 

 

Frova reduces the acute symptoms of a migraine attack. It does not prevent migraines, and can only be taken once a migraine attack has started. Frova is not a treatment for ordinary headaches and should only be taken after a person has been diagnosed as subject to chronic migraine attacks and the prescription for Frova has been given by a doctor

While the exact cause of migraine attacks has not been established, it is believed that a drop in the levels of serotonin sets off an expansion of blood vessels in the brain, which leads to the pulsating pain experienced during migraines.  Migraine attacks can occur without any external cause, or can be triggered by lights, sounds, or foodstuffs that a person is sensitive to. For example, there are what is known as “the 5 C’s of migraines”: cheese, chocolate, coffee, cola (like Coke) and citrus fruits.

  • How quickly does frovatriptan work?
    Trials showed that a response to Frova occurred within 1.5 hours in most patients. Pain-free responses after 2 hours were five to six times the rate in untreated patients.
  • Can you take frovatriptan every day?
    Only take Frova for the recommended period of time. Exceeding the prescribed dose can cause headaches to occur more frequently. Do not take frovatriptan or any other headache medication for more than 10 days in one month.
  • Can I take 2 frovatriptan?
    The standard dose for adults is one tablet once a migraine has started. If the pain comes back after being relieved, another dose may be taken if at least two hours have passed since the first dose. Not more than three tablets should be taken in a 24-hour period.
  • How long does frovatriptan last?
    Studies indicate that Frova has a half-life of approximately 26 hours. This means that frovatriptan may provide additional relief for patients with migraines of long duration, and may also reduce headache recurrence.
  • Do triptans interact with alcohol?
    Although there is no evidence that having alcohol in the body can affect how Frova works, it is best not to drink alcohol during a headache attack. Migraines can sometimes be triggered in some people by alcohol, or can make the pain worse.
