Check this carefully, it will tell you how many tablets to take and how
often to take them.
It is important that you do not take more than the dose agreed with
your doctor.
• The usual dosage for adults is one tablet as soon as possible after
the first signs of a migraine.
• Extra doses of a half to one tablet at half-hourly intervals, may be
required in some cases.

than 3 tablets in a 24-hour period, you must leave a gap of at least 4
days before taking any more tablets.
