Generic Zomig and Zomig ZMT Are Now Available!

Zolmitriptan, the generic form of migraine meds Zomig (the tablet form) and Zomig ZMT (the orally disintegrating tablet form) is available in pharmacies now!

Like the brand, zolmitriptan tablets and orally disintegrating tablets are available in 5 mg and 2.5 mg doses, and sold in packages of 3 or 6. The nasal spray is still only available as brand name Zomig.

Another generic triptan for treating migraines is good news for anyone looking for lower prices and more options. Zolmitriptan joins sumatriptan (Imitrex), rizatriptan (Maxalt), and naratriptan (Amerge).

While zolmitriptan doesn’t offer huge savings over the brand just yet—the lower prices for a 5 mg pack of 3 tablets are around $70, while the same package of Zomig runs about $90 – $94—prices should continue to go down over time.

The generic is also good news for anyone with insurance; it will be more likely to be covered as a Tier 1 prescription under most plans, meaning you’ll pay only your lowest copay.
