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!

Worked within 40mins for migraine from first thing in morning til 4pm. But had to stop taking after a year of use as I developed vertigo symptoms, where the room would spin continuously, which was worse than migraine. Stopped using and the spinning went away.

Maxalt was a game-changer for me. I didn't think it would be as effective as it was, but it kills the migraine pain in 30-60 minutes about 90% of the time with just one dose. I've only ever had to take 2 doses twice, and those migraines were easily the worst I've ever had, and Maxalt greatly reduced the migraine pain in those 2 situations. I still get the "migraine hangover" after my migraine has subsided, but the effects are much less debilitating and I'm not completely exhausted or sensitive to sound/light.

Apart from feeling a little washed out this medication is a life saver. After 42years of no relief I'm a believer.

My daughter,(whom is 14)was prescribed this after trying about 15 other different meds. Nothing has worked for her so far and her neurologist is lost on what to try next. We are scheduled for a botox session and hopefully that will give her some relief. She has a continuous headache that never goes away but some days she has a migrane and even after 2 doses of this med. she got no relief. She was 1 of the lucky ones that had no side effects.
