How to use Zavegepant 10 Mg/Actuation Nasal Spray

Read the Patient Information Leaflet and Instructions for Use if available from your pharmacist before you start using zavegepant and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

This product is for use in the nose only. Remove the zavegepant spray from the package only when you are ready to use it. Do not test or prime the spray before use. Doing so will make you lose the dose.

Use this medication at the first sign of a migraine as directed by your doctor, usually 1 spray into one nostril. Do not use more than one dose in a 24-hour period. Avoid spraying into your eyes. Gently blow your nose before using this medication. Keeping your head upright, close one nostril by pressing with your index finger on one side of your nose. Place the nozzle of the spray device into the other nostril and breathe in gently as you press the plunger. Keep your head upright, remove the nozzle from your nose, and gently breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth for 10 to 20 seconds. Do not use more than 8 doses of this medication per month.

Avoid using decongestant nasal sprays at the same time as this medication. If needed, use decongestant nasal sprays at least 1 hour after using zavegepant.

If you are using drugs for migraine attacks on 10 or more days each month, the drugs may actually make your headaches worse (medication overuse headache). Do not use medications more often or for longer than directed. Tell your doctor if you need to use this medication more often, or if the medication is not working as well, or if your headaches get worse.
