I have never had migraine headaches before. I have had an occational stress headache. Or maybe a self inflicted one from alcohol drinks. I've having really bad ones,for no reason. I realized it was a migraine when my usual Mortrin,Excederin,etc.. didn't work. I was sensitive to sound and light. My PA gave me a sample on this. I didn't have to take the second dose, Untill two days later ... Show Full Comment

I have been taking Maxalt for over a year and I have rarely had to take a second dose when I have a migraine. Maxalt usually kicks in 15-25 minutes after I take it. I put my tablet under my tounge...someone told me it works faster if you do it that way.

It takes about one hour to work. Afterwards, I'm sensitive to heat and cold on my skin.

I started getting migraines when I was going through menopause. Maxalt helps within 20 minutes. I sometimes get a little drowsy like when taking cold medication. Other than that, no problems.

Comment:
The MLT dissolving tablet is helpful when I feel a migraine coming on when I am not in a place where water is readily available. I can just pop it in my mouth and it dissolves in a few seconds.
