 Pisotifen drug information

Pisotifen is used to prevent severe headaches such as migraines, cluster headaches, and recurrent headaches. These are headaches that occur over certain periods and usually last 6-12 weeks.

Your body produces chemicals that can cause headaches in some cases, such as serotonin, tryptamine and histamine, which help eliminate the effects of pizotifen.

Patients should take piezotifen daily to prevent migraine attacks. It may not completely stop a migraine attack, but it does reduce the number and severity of the patient's attacks. Although piezotifen can help reduce the number of seizures, it is not effective in reducing migraine attacks that have already started.
