I've used Maxalt for migraines for years and it works great if I can get it when I first feel the symptons. If I wait until it's full blown, then I have to take Tramadol with it for it to work. I recently started taking the generic version and I've noticed that it makes me significantly more sleepy than the non-generic form.

If I use this before full blown migraine hits, it wipes it away. I just started using generic version and it makes me much more sleepy than I'm used to with non-generic form

Comment:
Maxalt on its own doesn't help me. I MUST use another pain med for it to work. I also take a prescribed pain med with the Maxalt and then my headache will go away. I used to take a differnt prescribed migraine med, for about 10 years, but it seemed to stop helping me about 2 years ago so I was put on Maxalt.

Comment:
Have been using for several years now and if I take it along with 4ibuprofen or within 10 minutes of ibuprofen it has worked 9out of 10 times quickly. However, my last two migraines it has not helped at all and I have ended up in the emergency room. I am pretty sure my migraines are due to hormones but I won' t rule out allergies or cheese. Coffee usually helps.
