Unavailability of Zomig ZMT

Zomig ZMT (the melts) 5mg is the only drug that works for me. I have not been able to find any for about 6 months, or if I did it was at least $6,500. for 30 tabs. Since practically no formularies nor insurance companies cover it anyway I have no idea who buys it for that. //
The one that worked the best was the Astra Zeneca product of Switzerland. You could also get their generic version from Global & later from Impax. It worked fine. None of these generics made in India work at all for me.
Does anyone know of a place where I can get the brand name or an affordable version that is not from a third world country? I really don’t think I will make it without Zomig. It can be in any country, I will find a way to get it. Thanks!

  1. Hi Sage,

    I know how scary and frustrating it is when we don't have access to our medications.

    Have you had a chance to call around to other pharmacies in your area? I would probably start there. Another idea would be to talk directly to Astra Zeneca.

    Have you tried nasal spray delivery? I'm not able to take the pill form of triptans due to adverse side effects, but can use sumatriptan nasal sprays. Just a thought.

    Let me know what you think

    1. I used to take Zomig many years ago, but I now take Rizatriptane, which is a newer generation of triptanes (if I remember correctly). So if you can't find Zomig at an affordable price perhaps you want to give that a try.
