The FDA has approved NURTEC™ ODT (rimegepant), a single, quick-dissolving tablet that can provide fast pain relief and return patients to normal function within one hour and deliver sustained efficacy that lasts up to 48 hours for many patients.

If you suffer from migraine, people should see a headache specialist or neurologist specializing in migraine.

Nurtec ODT is not used as a preventive treatment of migraine. Do not take if you are allergic to Nurtec ODT or any of its ingredients. The most common side effect was nausea in 2% of patients.
