RELPAX®( eletriptan) What is the maximum dose of RELPAX® that may be taken to treat a migraine?

What is the maximum dose of RELPAX® that may be taken to treat a migraine?

First migraine attack treated with RELPAX.

The recommended initial dose is 40 mg, taken as early as possible after the onset of a migraine headache.

If the initial dose is ineffective, controlled clinical trials have not shown a benefit of a second dose to treat the same attack.

However, if the headache returns following initial improvement, there is evidence to suggest that a repeat 40 mg dose may be beneficial. If a second dose is required, it should not be taken within 2 hours of the initial dose.

Subsequent migraine attacks.

If the 40 mg dose is tolerated but ineffective, a maximum single dose of 80 mg may be taken to treat a subsequent migraine. A second dose of 80 mg may be taken 2 hours after the first dose if required.

Maximum dosage

The maximum single dose of RELPAX is 80 mg. The maximum daily dose should not exceed 160 mg.
