The main medical use for pizotifen is for the prevention of
vascular headache including migraine and cluster headache.
Pizotifen is one of a range of medications used for this purpose,
other options include propranolol, topiramate, valproic acid and
amitriptyline. While pizotifen is reasonably effective, its use is
limited by side effects, principally drowsiness and weight gain,
and it is usually not the first choice medicine for preventing
migraines, instead being used as an alternative when other drugs
have failed to be effective. It is not effective in relieving
migraine attacks once in progress. Pizotifen has also been reported
as highly effective in a severe case of erythromelalgia, a rare
neurovascular disease that is sometimes refractory to the other
drugs named above.
Other applications for which pizotifen may be used include as an
antidepressant, or for the treatment of anxiety or social phobia.
Animal studies also suggest that pizotyline could be used in the
treatment of serotonin syndrome or MDMA overdose in a similar
manner to the closely related antihistamine/antiserotonin drug
