Nurtec (generic name: rimegepant) is prescribed as a preventative treatment for episodic migraines and a treatment for acute migraine attacks in adults.  Rimegepant is a calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) receptor agonist. CGRP is a protein that has some part in the development of migraine. Nurtec blocks the effects of CGRP to try to shorten the duration of attacks and reduce pain and other symptoms of migraine attacks.
Nurtec is an oral tablet that can be taken under the tongue, where it dissolves.

Dosage

Nurtec should be taken according to the doctor’s instructions.
The standard dosage for the treatment of acute migraine attacks is one tablet. Do not take more than one tablet within 24 hours. Taking more than 18 doses of Nurtec within the space of 30 days has not been investigated and therefore is not advised. For the preventative treatment of episodic migraines, taking one tablet on alternate days is the common treatment.

This text is for informational purposes only. Please consult your doctor or pharmacist before using any medication.

Some mild side effects may occur, including:

  • Nausea
  • Indigestion 
  • Stomach pain

If these persist or worsen, talk to a doctor of pharmacist.

If an allergic reaction is experienced while taking Nurtec, stop taking this medication immediately and consult a doctor or healthcare provider.

Allergic reaction symptoms may include:

  • Swelling of the face, mouth, tongue and neck
  • Trouble breathing
  • Rash or redness of the skin

Nurtec is prescribed for adults as a preventative treatment for chronic migraines and can also be taken for the relief of episodic migraine attacks. It belongs to the calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) receptor agonist therapeutic group.

Chronic migraine is diagnosed when a person has at least 15 headaches each month, and at least 8 of those were migraine attacks.

Symptoms of migraines include headache as well as nausea, confusion, blurred vision, mood changes, fatigue, and increased sensitivity to light, sound, or noise. The pain is usually felt on one side of the head and may be accompanied by aura (temporary visual disturbances that usually are felt before the other symptoms.)

  • What does the drug Nurtec do?
    Nurtec is a calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) receptor agonist that blocks CGRP receptors. It helps treat migraines (with or without aura) in adults and prevent episodic migraines.
  • Is Nurtec a triptan?
    No, it is not a tripan. Nurtec is a CGRP receptor agonist, while triptans are a group of medications called 5HT1-receptor agonists. According to the American Headache Society, triptans are a preferred choice for treating moderate-to-severe migraines, but CGRP antagonists like Nurtec work especially well for migraine prevention.
  • Is it OK to take Nurtec every day?
    When taking Nurtec as a preventative treatment for episodic migraines, it is advised to take one dose every other day. For the treatment of an acute migraine attack when it occurs, one dose can be taken. Do not exceed the use of more than one tablet in 24 hours or more than 18 tablets in 30 days.
  • Does Nurtec have bad side effects?
    Nurtec side effects vary from patient to patient, as with all medications. The most common side effects may include nausea and stomach pain, while the most serious can be an allergic reaction, in which case a doctor should be contacted immediately.
  • Can Nurtec cause weight gain?
    Nurtec was not reported to cause weight gain in the clinical trials, and weight gain is not listed as a side effect.
