INDICATIONS

FROVA is indicated for the acute treatment of migraine with or without aura in adults.

Limitations of Use

  • Use only if a clear diagnosis of migraine has been established. If a patient has no response for the first migraine attack treated with FROVA, reconsider the diagnosis of migraine before FROVA is administered to treat any subsequent attacks.
  • FROVA is not indicated for the prevention of migraine attacks.
  • Safety and effectiveness of FROVA have not been established for cluster headache.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Dosing Information

The recommended dose is a single tablet of FROVA (frovatriptan 2.5 mg) taken orally with fluids.

If the migraine recurs after initial relief, a second tablet may be taken, providing there is an interval of at least 2 hours between doses. The total daily dose of FROVA should not exceed 3 tablets (3 x 2.5 mg per 24 hour period).

There is no evidence that a second dose of FROVA is effective in patients who do not respond to a first dose of the drug for the same headache.

The safety of treating an average of more than 4 migraine attacks in a 30-day period has not been established.
