What Axert is and what it is used for
Almogran is an antimigraine agent which belongs to a class of compounds known as selective serotonin receptor agonists. Almogran is believed to reduce the inflammatory response associated with migraines by binding to the serotonin receptors in the brain (cranial) blood vessels and causing them to narrow. Almogran is used to relieve headaches associated with migraine attacks with or without aura.
How to take Axert
Almogran should only be used to treat an actual migraine attack and not to prevent migraine attacks or headaches. Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. Adults (18-65 years old) The recommended dose is one 12.5 mg tablet which should be taken as early as possible after the onset of the migraine attack. If your migraine attack does not subside, do not take more than one tablet for the same attack. If you experience a second migraine attack within 24 hours, a second 12.5 mg tablet can be taken but you must leave at least two hours between your first and second tablet. The maximum daily dose is two (12.5 mg) tablets within 24 hours. Tablet(s) should be swallowed with liquid (e.g. water) and can be taken with or without food. You should take Almogran as soon as possible after the onset of the migraine, although it is still effective if taken at a later stage. Severe kidney disease If you have severe kidney disease do not take more than one 12.5 mg tablet every 24 hours. If you take more Almogran than you should If you accidentally take too many tablets, or if someone else or a child takes this medicine, talk to a doctor or pharmacist immediately. If you forget to take Almogran Try to take Almogran as you have been prescribed. Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten tablet.
