How to Take Nurtec ODT

One dose. Anytime.
Anywhere. No water needed.*

People have reported that they often have to rely on an additional dose of medication to treat a migraine attack. But with Nurtec ODT, that doesn't have to be the case.

86% of people chose not to take additional acute medication to treat their migraine attack after one dose of Nurtec ODT vs 71% of people in the placebo group.

*Nurtec ODT can be taken as needed up to once daily.

Based on a December 23, 2019-January 17, 2020 U.S. online survey completed by 1076 adults with migraine. Respondents were recruited from the National Headache Foundation
membership list.
