Zomig - protivomigrenoznoy with drug activity.
The pharmacological action of Zomig
By action and effectiveness is an absolute analog of Zomig Zolmitriptan. Both drugs have moderate activity towards 5HT1A receptors. Under the influence of the drug afferent fibers of the trigeminal nerve innervate the dura mater of the brain blood vessels and blood vessels. In animal experiments, scientists have noted that Zomig causes vasoconstriction associated with the suppression of previously released and calcitonin gene-related peptide, substance P and vasoactive intestinal peptide. That is what provokes the improvement at any migraine attacks. Frequently Zomig, ratings patients confirmed this reduces the intensity of the pain (which occurs after an hour), reduces the likelihood of nausea and vomiting, and photophobia and phonophobia, are associated with migraine.
In addition to these properties, Zomig has a good effect on the brain, the core alignment mechanism involved in the formation and development of migraine attacks. This, in fact, explains the very robust effect, especially with repeated use of the drug.
In any migraine attacks observed vasodilation, which is due to the activation of reflex excitation, which is supported on the orthodromic trigeminal nerve fibers and parasympathetic innervation in the blood vessels of the brain. Zomig and blocks the release of reflex arousal vasoactive intestinal peptide, and thereby takes the pharmacological action of the drug.
