Interaction Details

There were no interactions found between Almotriptan and Algal Oil. This does not mean the potential for an interaction does not exist, however. There is often a lack of studies and data surrounding traditional medicine, especially concerning drug interactions, so it is important to always consult your provider before making any changes to your medication regimen.

Algal Oil Overview

Algal Oil Algal oil is oil that is extracted from algae. The oil can be extracted from a variety of algae species, using a variety of methods, such as cold press extraction and solvent extraction. Algal oil is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids such as EPA and DHA, which have been linked to a number of health benefits, including reduced inflammation and improved heart health. Algal oil dietary supplements are often marketed as a vegetarian source of omega-3 fatty acids (i.e., 'fish oil').

Almotriptan Overview

  • Almotriptan is used to treat the symptoms of migraine headaches (severe, throbbing headaches that sometimes are accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to sound and light). Almotriptan is in a class of medications called selective serotonin receptor agonists. It works by narrowing blood vessels around the brain, stopping pain signals from being sent to the brain, and blocking the release of certain natural substances that cause pain, nausea, and other symptoms of migraine. Almotriptan does not prevent migraine attacks or reduce the number of headaches you have.
