ZECUITY is an iontophoretic transdermal system (patch) that delivers sumatriptan and is indicated for the acute treatment of migraine with or without aura in adults.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Do not take ZECUITY if you have heart disease, a history of heart disease or stroke, peripheral vascular disease (narrowing of blood vessels to your legs, arms, stomach or kidney), transient ischemic attack (TIA) or problems with your blood circulation, uncontrolled blood pressure, migraines that cause temporary paralysis on one side of your body or basilar migraine, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome or other disturbances of heart rhythm. Very rarely, certain people, even some without heart disease, have had serious heart-related problems after taking triptans like ZECUITY.
Do not use ZECUITY if you have taken other migraine medications such as ergotamine medications or other triptans in the last 24 hours or if you have taken monoamine oxidase-A (MAO-A) inhibitors within the last 2 weeks.
Do not use ZECUITY during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Do not use ZECUITY if you have an allergy to sumatriptan or components of ZECUITY or if you have had allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) following use of ZECUITY. If you develop ACD, talk to your healthcare provider before using sumatriptan in another form.
ZECUITY, like other triptans, may be associated with a potentially life-threatening condition called serotonin syndrome, mainly when used together with certain types of antidepressants including serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs).
Tell your healthcare provider before using ZECUITY if you have heart disease or a family history of heart disease, stroke, high cholesterol or diabetes; have gone through menopause; are a smoker; have had epilepsy or seizures or if you are pregnant, nursing or thinking about becoming pregnant.
The most common side effects of ZECUITY are application site pain, tingling, itching, warmth and discomfort. Most patients experience some skin redness after removing ZECUITY. This redness typically goes away in 24 hours.
