Maxalt is a miracle drug for me. I have used it for the past 6 years. I wish I had know about it sooner. If I take it as soon as the aura begins, my headache never comes. I tell all my migraine-suffering friends about it. I should be a sales rep. It truly is a miracle drug.

Finally a drug that gives relief from my migraines. Although I had to increase the dose to 10 mg, it works every time. Only rarely do I need to take a second pill after 2 hours. My migraines are 3-day affairs, so you can imagine the great relief - I have my life back!

I have had real success with this drug. It works 9 out of 10 times and because it is not a narcotic I am able to return to normal activities sooner. The only side affect that I have noticed is I become weak and sometimes I get a sore throat. But neither of these last more than a couple of hours.

The first time I took Maxalt, I didn't notice any relief. The second time I used it I felt dizzy and my face felt funny. Every time I tried to get up, I would get so dizzy it would send me back down into my chair. Finally had to go sleep it off.
