Imigran Australia tablets are generally prescribed in cases of migraine attacks, with or without aura, hence Imigran should only be applied when there is a confirmed and diagnosed migraine. Imigran Australia is a 50mg capsule-shaped tablet, pink in colour, film-coated, with engraving “GX ES3”. It is best to take Imigran Australia without exceeding the prescribed dosage and as acute intermittent migraine treatment only. Imigran should be taken at early stages when the signs migraine attack just start appearing. However, the medicine has proved to be effective at any stage of migraine attack. The recommended oral dosage of Imigran Australia is a 50mg tablet. Certain patients may require a 100mg dose, but only with a doctor’s permission. In general, the overall Imigran dose should not exceed 300 mg within 24 hours and should be taken with water and a minimum interval of 2 hours in between each intake.
In case, if a patient does not respond to the prescribed Imigran dose during migraine attack, the second dose should not be taken and further consultation with a doctor should be appointed. Basically, Imigran should be as monotherapy for migraine treatment and should not be mixed with ergotamine or its derivatives (i.e. methysergide).
