About Frova

What Frova is used for

FROVA is a medication used for the treatment of migraine attacks in adults. FROVA is a member of a class of drugs called 5-HT1 agonists.

What Frova does

Migraine headache is believed to be caused by a widening of the blood vessels in the head. FROVA narrows the vessels and relieves the pain and other symptoms of migraine headache.

When Frova should not be used

FROVA should only be taken if you have a migraine headache. FROVA should not be used continuously to prevent or reduce the number of attacks. Do not use FROVA to treat other types of headaches that might be caused by other conditions.

Please tell your doctor all of your symptoms. Your doctor will decide whether you have migraines and if FROVA is for you.

Do not take FROVA if you

  • have uncontrolled high blood pressure

  • have heart disease or history of heart disease, irregular heart beat, angina

  • have had a stroke, transient ischemic attacks (TIAs)

  • have circulation (blood flow) problems, Raynaud’s syndrome

  • have any allergic reaction to frovatriptan or to any other ingredients in FROVA (see “What the nonmedicinal ingredients are:”)

  • have a severe liver problem

  • are pregnant, think you might be pregnant, are trying to become pregnant or are using inadequate contraception, unless you have discussed this with your doctor.

What the medicinal ingredient is

  • have any risk factors for heart disease including high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, smoking, a family history of heart disease; are postmenopausal or a male over 40 years of age

Ask your physician for instructions about taking FROVA if you are taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) such as sertraline, escitalopram and fluoxetine or serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) such as venlafaxine or duloxetine for depression. A life-threatening condition called serotonin syndrome can happen when medicines called triptans, such as FROVA, and medicines used to treat depression and mood disorders called SSRIs or SNRIs are used together. Signs and symptoms of serotonin syndrome include the following: restlessness, diarrhea, hallucinations, coma, loss of coordination, nausea, fast heart beat, vomiting, increased body temperature, changes in blood pressure and overactive reflexes.

  • have taken ergotamine type medications such as ergotamine (Bellergal-Spacetabs, Cafergot, Ergomar, Gravergol, Megral), dihydro-ergotamine (Dihydroergotamine (DHE), or Migranal), or methysergide (Sansert) within the last 24 hours unless your doctor tells you it is safe to do so.


Proper Use of Frova

Usual dose

Take one FROVA tablet with fluid for your migraine headache. If your headache comes back after the initial dose, a second tablet may be taken not sooner than 4 hours after the first dose.

If your headache is not relieved by the first tablet, do not take the second tablet for the same attack without first consulting your doctor. Do not take more than 2 tablets (2×2.5 mg) a day. If your condition worsens, seek medical attention.

Overdose

If you take more medication than you have been told to take, you should contact your doctor, hospital emergency department, or nearest poison control center immediately, even if you do not feel sick.

If anyone other than you accidentally takes your tablets they should seek medical advice immediately.
