Frova is a headache medicine that narrows blood vessels around the brain. This medicine also reduces substances in the body that can trigger headache pain, nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, and other migraine symptoms. Frova is used to treat migraine headaches. This medicine will only treat a headache that has already begun. It will not prevent headaches or reduce the number of attacks. Frova should not be used to treat a common tension headache, or a headache that causes loss of movement on one side of your body. Use Frova only if your condition has been confirmed by a doctor as migraine headaches.
Always read the patient information and instructions carefully before using this medication.
