Medicines have benefits and some have risks. Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist or you have side effects see your health professional. Brands and generics both contain the same active ingredient(s) and are medically equivalent. Some brands are marketed under different names by the same manufacturer depending on the country of origin. Images are provided as a reference only, the received medicine may vary in packaging, color, pill shape, etc, from one batch to the next. For an item marked "generic" any quality brand may be sent, however you will always receive the active ingredients ordered in the strength(s) ordered.

Maxalt (rizatriptan) is an abortive treatment for migraine headaches with or without aura. It is also used off-label to alleviate cluster headaches. In both cases the medication is only effective at stopping headaches that have already begun; it will not prevent future headaches from developing.

The active ingredient in Maxalt, rizatriptan, is in the triptan family of drugs. Like other triptans, Maxalt is highly effective at alleviating migraine pain and symptoms but does carry risk of potentially serious side effects. It is important to discuss use of this product with a doctor and to disclose any other medical conditions or medications being taken before starting treatment.

Maxalt for Maximum Migraine Relief

Like most headache treatments, Maxalt works best if taken at the earliest symptoms that a migraine is starting. For many individuals these early symptoms include aura, nausea or sensitivity to light or noise; for others it is the onset of pain.

Treatment can vary between individuals and guidelines may vary between countries. In most cases, the standard dose for otherwise healthy adults is 5 to 10 mg, which can be followed up with an additional 5 to 10 mg at 2-hour intervals if the symptoms persist or return. Regulatory agencies typically advise taking no more than 20 to 30 mg in a 24 hour period.

Maxalt's effects are dose-dependent; a higher dose provides greater relief. Unfortunately, higher doses also increase risk of potentially severe side effects. In most cases patients new to Maxalt start with 5 mg doses, increasing to 10 mg only if 5 mg proves insufficient. Starting with lower doses also gives an idea of how well a patient tolerates the medication at relatively safe levels.

Effects are noticeable within 15 to 30 minutes of taking a tablet and peak within 1 or 2 hours. Taking with food is optional; food may resolve stomach-related side effects, but the medication works faster if taken on an empty stomach. If vomiting occurs within 15 minutes of taking a dose, a replacement dose should be taken.

Additional methods that tend to alleviate migraine symptoms, such as laying down, dimming lights, taking a hot shower or whatever other techniques work for an individual, will further enhance the effects of Maxalt.

Using Maxalt for Cluster Headaches

As anyone with cluster headaches knows, treating this type of headache can be tricky. Generally more time-sensitive than migraines, the speed with which a cluster headache is treated is often the difference between success and failure. For this reason regular tablets are generally not the first choice for treatment; triptan rapidly-dissolving tablets, nasal sprays and injections are usually preferred.

That said, some patients do find Maxalt tablets successfully abort cluster headaches, particularly if taken at early stages. Dosage and administration is typically the same as for migraines; 5 to 10 mg per dose, repeated after 2 hours if needed.

Warnings & Side Effects

The majority of Maxalt users experience no side effects or only very mild, transient side effects, including:

  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Stomach cramps
  • Diarrhea
  • Muscle pain or cramps
  • Tremors
  • Flushing
  • Dry mouth

Rarely more serious adverse effects occur, which warrant emergency medical attention:

  • Pain or pressure in chest
  • Difficulty breathing, speaking or swallowing
  • Severe dizziness, disorientation or confusion
  • Rapid, pounding or irregular heartbeat
  • Persistent cold sweats
  • Severe stomach pain
  • Blood in stools or vomit
  • Pain, weakness or numbness in arms or legs

Individuals who are under 18 and those who have medical conditions or are taking other medications will likely need adjusted doses to prevent potentially dangerous side effects. Speak with a doctor about potential risks before taking Maxalt if:

  • Severely overweight or underweight
  • There is a history of heart or blood vessel problems
  • There is a high risk of heart disease or stroke
  • There is a history of high blood pressure
  • Other medications are being used

In most cases use should be avoided completely if:

  • Pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Other triptan medications have been taken in the last 24 hours
  • Medications containing ergot have been taken in the last 24 hours
  • A monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) has been taken in the last 2 weeks, or will be taken in the following 2 weeks

If too much Maxalt is taken, or if children or pets consume an unknown amount, emergency medical attention is warranted even if no symptoms are apparent.
