Active Ingredient History
Frovatriptan succinate (trade name Frova) is a selective 5-hydroxytryptamine1 (5-HT1B/1D) receptor subtype agonist, and is used for the treatment of migraine attacks with or without aura in adults. Frovatriptan has no significant effects on GABAA mediated channel activity and has no significant affinity for benzodiazepine binding sites. Frovatriptan is believed to act on extracerebral, intracranial arteries and to inhibit excessive dilation of these vessels in migraine. Serious but rare cardiac events have been reported in patients with risk factors predictive of coronary artery disease (CAD). These include coronary artery vasospasm, transient myocardial ischemia, myocardial infarction, ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation. NCATS
