Migraine symptoms? Try Maxalt for relief

October 25, 2007 | by DoctorSolve

Maxalt (Rizatriptan) is a medicine used to treat headache, pain and other symptoms of migraine in adults. It is a selective serotonin receptor agonist and works by narrowing dilated blood vessels in the brain, therefore relieving migraine headaches.

Migraine symptoms

Common symptoms of migraine include:

  • Throbbing or pulsating headache on one side of your head.
  • Moderate to severe headache intensity.
  • Worsening of your headache with routine physical activity.
  • Nausea, vomiting, or both.
  • Sensitivity to light and noise, and sometimes smells.

Before using Maxalt

You should tell your doctor before using this medicine if you have/had these medical conditions:

  • Heart disease and stroke.
  • Uncontrolled high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol.
  • Chest pain, shortness of breath.
  • Pregnant, planning to become pregnant or are breast-feeding.

How to take Maxalt

Take a one dose of Maxalt as soon as your migraine symptoms appear. A second dose may be taken if there is only a partial response or symptoms of the migraine return. Do not take it sooner than 2 hours after the first dose. Do not exceed more than 30mg in a 24-hour period. Do not take additional doses if you do not get a response from the first dose. Do not increase your dose without first consulting your doctor.
