Frovatriptan works on the neurotransmitter serotonin and is called a selective serotonin agonist medicine. It narrows the blood vessels in and around the brain. This blocks pain signals from being sent to the brain, stops the release of substances in the brain that trigger migraine symptoms like pain, nausea and dizziness.
