Teva Launches Generic Relpax
Eletriptan HBr, a seretonin receptor agonist (triptan), is indicated for the acute treatment of migraine with or without aura in adults. It is not for the prevention of migraine attacks or for the treatment of cluster headaches.
Eletriptan HBr has high affinity to 5-HT1B/1D, 5-HT1D, and 5-HT1F receptors and modest affinity for 5-HT1A, 5-HT1E, 5-HT2B and 5-HT7 receptors. Its agonist effects at the 5-HT1B/1D receptors on intracranial blood vessels and sensory nerves of the trigeminal system result in cranial vessel constriction and inhibition of pro-inflammatory neuropeptide release.
Eletriptan HBr Tablets are available as 20mg and 40mg strengths in 1x6 tablet blister packs.
