Side effects with Maxalt are the worst I have experienced. Side effects with Maxalt are; heart throbbing or pounding, trouble breathing, drowsiness, dizziness, low/decrease in energy and vomiting.

This drug has the potential to improve my migraine/sinus headaches. I haven't been on this long, but it's been pretty effective. Time will tell if I have to use other headache medicines to aid with. By the way, my doctor told me to take this by putting the pill under my tongue and letting it start to dissolve and then swallow with water.

Comment:
Without treatment my migraines are dibilitating. I suffer through hours of crippling pain, blackouts, violent vomiting. Maxalt alleviates the pain and nausea, and allows me to function. Unfortunately it is SO EXPENSIVE I can no longer purchase the medice. ($4400 for 90 doses!)
