    I love this medication. This is the first time I have ever been able to find something that will take my migraine headaches away. Before they would last for 3 weeks at a time now I take a Maxalt and go. The taste does not bother me either.

    I've tried Imitrex and Frova and this medication works the best. Takes my hormonal migraine away every time. I get migrains twice a month that for 2-5 days in a row. Maxalt works faster if I take it at the onset of a migraine. The only thing that concerns me is muscle and joint pain that I have noticed gradually coming on since I started Maxalt about a yr ago. Seems to be worse the day after ... Show Full Comment

    LOVE this med! I recently started to take a med to prevent my migraines or else I get an average of 2-3 a week, so thankfully they're not as frequent. When I get one, however, I reach for the Maxalt with the first signs and symptoms. I love that I can take this pill anywhere, and have to come not to mind the chalky taste over the last couple years I have had this medication. Nothing but the ma ... Show Full Comment
