Welcome to the Axert Forum

  1. hangingbyathread - I addressed some of your questions in the Zomig thread. I hope they are helpful answers...

    1. axert works very well for me. I am surprised after all this time on the market it has not had a generic option. This medication is a great expense. Are there similar options or will there be a generic option soon?

      1. froeckmann,

        Drugs patents are protected for 14 years from when the drug hits the market. For Axert, that was May of 2001, so a generic should be available around the second half of 2015. Several triptans are generic - Imitrex (sumatriptan), Amerge (naratriptan), Maxalt (rizatriptan), and Zomig (zolmitriptan).
