It's been a hit or miss with this medicine. I felt like I was hit by a car the day after I took the medicine. I'm sore all over and my joints ache. I too get migraines when the weather changes and I feel terrible. But this is better than nothing.

The migraine was pretty much gone, or at least very bearable. The only side effects I experienced were fatigue and racing heartbeat. But they were tolerable compared to the migraine pain.

I have just started taking this medicine. I am very pleased with my initial use of Maxalt. The taste is not that bad and it started working witihin fifteen minutes. For me, it worked better than Imitrex. But, it is very expensive under my current Insurance Plan.
