It is also important to inform your doctor if you have had short-lived chest pain and tightness.

Q. Can Rizact be used for the prevention of migraine attacks?

No, Rizact is not used for the prevention of migraine attacks. It should only be used where a clear diagnosis of migraine has been established.

Q. What triggers migraine attacks?

Migraine may be triggered by several factors. Some of the common triggers are caffeine withdrawal, changes in hormone levels during menstruation or with the use of birth control pills. Migraine also gets triggered with changes in sleep patterns, such as not getting enough sleep, drinking alcohol, missing meals, or smoking. Rigorous exercise or other physical stress, loud noises or bright lights, odors or perfumes, or exposure to smoke and stress and anxiety may also act as a trigger.

You may also have difficulty speaking and loss of consciousness, although this is unusual.

Q. Can I take Rizact with propranolol?

Yes, you can take propranolol and Rizact together. However, since Propranolol may cause an increase in levels of Rizact, so you should take 5 mg dose of Rizact and not 10 mg.

Medicines for prevention of migraine are usually used if you have tried avoiding possible triggers but are still experiencing migraines. You may also be prescribed these medicines if you experience very severe migraine attacks, or if your attacks happen frequently.
