Have you experienced side effects from Nurtec ODT (rimegepant)?

  1. Nothing except a little fogginess,after the migraine was over, but then I always have a little fogginess after any migraine. It only took 15 minutes for the headache to go away and it was a bad one. I am getting a script for it.
    Tricare is paying for it!!! Needs script and pre-approval letter. First med to really work!!!

    1. Glad to hear Nurtec is working well for you so far, mrst53! And what a bonus that it's covered. Please keep us posted and thanks for sharing your good news!

      Take care,

      1. I just tried my first sample and it worked. It really wiped me out yesterday when I took it. My limbs also felt heavy but the horrible migraine that I've had for 3 weeks has lifted. I also have no rebound today and feel so much better. I'm going to try to get my insurance to pay for it and if not get the drug company to help me. I hope it continues to work long term.

        1. I just started nurtec- works fantastic for pain, but this wasn't listed as side effect- so glad I found your review- like you, I prefer this to the pain, but I was a bit concerned- glad to know others experienced as well

        2. I wonder if it would be helpful to report your experience to the FDA. Reports can make a difference when it comes to labeling additional side effects. If you're interested, here's the link to file a report: https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/medwatch/index.cfm

      2. Thanks for the reply. Do you think its better than Zomig? Ive been on Zomig for years. It works 80% of the time. But lately my migraines have been getting worse. Pain starting in base of my head/neck & shoots all the way up the sides of temples & top of my head.
        Started using CBD oil too
