Frova Dosage

Doses of Frova work differently in different people. You and your doctor can weigh the possible benefit of a higher dose with possible side-effect risks.

By keeping a migraine journal of what doses you are taking when you experience a migraine, you can be prepared to discuss how well the drug works with your doctor. Be sure to share your migraine journal with your doctor at your next appointment.


Frova Dosage – Tablets

Frova is available in tablet form in single doses of 2.5 mg.

The recommended dose is a single 2.5 mg Frova tablet taken by mouth with liquids.

If your headache comes back after initial relief, you can take a second tablet as long as 2 hours have passed since your last dose. The total dose of Frova you take in a day should not be more than 3 tablets (3 x 2.5 mg per day).

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

Doctors do not yet know how safe it is to treat more than 4 migraine attacks in a 30-day period.
