About ALMOTAN 6.25MG TABLET

ALMOTAN 6.25MG TABLET belongs to a class of drugs known as 'antimigraine' used to prevent migraine symptoms such as headache, nausea, and vomiting. Migraine is a neurological condition characterized by intense pulsating, throbbing, pounding, debilitating headache, which usually occurs on one side of the head, however, it can occur on both sides or shift. Hormonal changes, stress, bright lights, loud sounds, certain foods and drinks can trigger migraine headaches.
