5. Mechanism Action Of Rizact 5mg?

Rizact tablets 5mg tablet contain rizatriptan, which is a member of the group of drugs called tryptans and is a serotonin agonist that mimics the action of serotonin (also known as 5-hydroxytryptamine, or 5-HT).  Serotonin is a brain chemical that is involved in control of mood, pain sensation, sexual behaviour, sleep, as well as dilation (widening) and constriction (narrowing) of blood vessels. 

Migraine is thought to be caused by dilatation or widening of blood vessels in the head due to one of many migraine triggers, which in turn stimulates nearby sensory nerves so that you feel pain.

Rizatriptan in Rizact 5mg tablet  stimulates the serotonin receptors in these expanded blood vessels making them narrow again (vasoconstriction) and inhibits trigeminal nerve activity, relieving pain.  Both actions are thought to contribute to the anti-migraine action of rizatriptan and relieve headache and other symptoms of a migraine attack. 

Rizact 5mg tablet (disintegrating) tablets are formulated using rapid release fast disintegration technology.  They work is the same way as other triptan-containing migraine tablets but are effective sooner, usually within 30 minutes, because they dissolve in the mouth before swallowing. 

Therefore, the active ingredient rizatriptan is released more rapidly, which speeds up absorption into the blood and reduces the time taken to reach its target receptors in the brain.  Rizact orodispersible (disintegrating) tablets are also helpful if nausea and vomiting make it difficult to swallow tablets.
