Uses
Sandomigran (Pizotifen Malate) is used for the prophylaxis (prevention) of migraine headaches and attacks. It works by acting on the blood vessels and serotonin receptors in the brain. The active ingredient in this drug is known as a serotonin antagonist and after administration, it inhibits the 5HT (serotonin) receptors which are found inside the brain. This in turn blocks the dilation of the blood vessels (which is believed to play a part in causing migraines).

Serotonin can also cause other chemicals to be released which can contribute to this widening of the blood vessels in the brain. It also has anticholinergic and antihistamine benefits. Medical studies have shown that treatment with this medicine can decrease the frequency at which headaches occur. Headaches that do occur may also be less severe in nature. Other types of vascular headaches have also been treated with this medicine, such as vasomotor headaches and cluster headaches.

Dosage and Administration
Sandomigran (Pizotifen Malate) is administered orally. The medicine content of each tablet is 0.5mg. Your doctor will conduct a medical assessment to determine whether or not this medicine is a suitable treatment for your condition. Some patients will be directed to take one tablet per day. If your doctor deems it necessary, your dosage may be increased to 3 tablets per day. Further adjustments may be needed if the headaches are not sufficiently controlled. However, you must not make any adjustments to your dosage unless your doctor tells you to do so.
