Zavzpret (zavegepent) is a new medication for acute migraine. It is in the medication class of CGRP receptor antagonists.
Zavzpret is administered via a spray nozzle with plunger that does not require priming, for quicker administration. To administer, you spray one spray in one nostril and then discard the empty unit. One spray may be used in a 24 hour period.
In the clinical trials, some subjects had relief in 15 minutes and return to normal functioning in 30 minutes.
Zavzpret may be especially appropriate for migraineurs suffering from nausea and vomiting as accompanying symptoms.
