What is Relpax?
Relpax is a medication classified as a triptan, a class of drugs commonly used to treat migraines and cluster headaches.
Its mechanism of action involves constricting blood vessels in the brain and reducing inflammation, which helps alleviate the throbbing pain associated with migraines. Relpax is available by prescription only, and it comes in oral tablet form, typically in strengths of 20mg and 40mg, allowing patients to choose the appropriate dosage based on their condition and doctor’s recommendations.

FAQs about Relpax prescription refill
Do I need a prescription for Relpax?

The brand name of Relpax is "Relpax" itself. Relpax is the trade name for the medication that contains the active ingredient eletriptan and is used to treat migraines.
How many relpax can I take in 24 hours?
Adults should take 20 or 40 milligrams (mg) in one dose for migraine headaches if the migraine returns after being eased, a second dose should be given at least two hours after the first one. You should consume at most 80 mg in a single day.
How long does Relpax stay in your system?
The half-life of Relpax (eletriptan) is approximately 4 hours. It typically takes about five half-lives for a medication to be mostly eliminated from the body. So, Relpax may stay in your system for around 20 hours before it is mostly cleared.

The recommended maximum dosage of Relpax (eletriptan) for most individuals is 40mg in 24 hours. It is generally advised not to exceed 80mg in 24 hours. It is often limited to 2 doses in 24 hours, with at least 2 hours between doses. The total number of Relpax tablets you can take in a week should be discussed with your doctor.
Can you get high off Relpax?
No, Relpax (eletriptan) is not known to produce a "high" or euphoric effect. It is not considered a recreational or psychoactive drug. Relpax is only prescribed for the specific purpose of treating migraines.
Is relpax a narcotic?
No, Relpax (eletriptan) is not a narcotic. It belongs to a class of medications called triptans, which treat migraines and cluster headaches by constricting blood vessels in the brain. Triptans work differently from narcotics, which are opioids that act on the central nervous system to relieve pain and can be habit-forming.
How long does eletriptan take to work?
Relpax's primary ingredient, eletriptan, usually begins to take effect between 30 minutes and two hours after taking it. The time it takes for someone to start feeling better can differ from person to person and may also depend on the severity of their migraine and how they react to the medicine.
Is Relpax a blood thinner?
No, Relpax (eletriptan) is not a blood thinner. It is a medication used to treat migraines by constricting blood vessels in the brain and reducing inflammation. Blood thinners, also known as anticoagulants, are a different class of drugs used to prevent or treat conditions related to abnormal blood clotting. Relpax does not have the exact mechanism of action as blood thinners.
Can Relpax cause stroke?
In rare instances, a stroke may be a side effect of relpax. You are more likely to experience this adverse effect if you have previously experienced a stroke.
Is Relpax bad for kidneys?
Relpax (eletriptan) is primarily metabolized in the liver, and there is limited evidence to suggest that it may have a minor impact on kidney function. However, it's generally considered safe for individuals with normal kidney function.
Who should not take eletriptan?
If you have ever experienced cardiac disease, coronary artery disease, blood flow issues, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, uncontrolled high blood pressure, severe liver disease, a heart attack, a stroke, or if your headache seems to be different from your typical migraine headaches, you should avoid using eletriptan.
Is aspirin better than triptan for migraines?
Like eletriptan (Relpax), Triptans are designed to target migraine symptoms and are generally more practical for many people. Aspirin may be considered a milder, over-the-counter option for mild migraines, but it may not provide the same level of relief as triptans for moderate to severe migraines.
What not to take with Relpax?
Sibutramine shouldn't be taken with Relpax since there could be a significant interaction. Nefazodone, azole antifungals, antibiotics, and protease inhibitors, which disrupt the liver enzymes that remove eletriptan from your body, should not be used within 72 hours of taking Relpax.
