About Maxalt Melt

Maxalt Melt is a prescription medication that is used to treat migraines. It relieves the pain of a throbbing headache, which is the most common symptom of this condition. It can also help to alleviate other, less common symptoms, such as seeing flashing lights, speech problems and co-ordination difficulties. The active ingredient in this drug is called rizatriptan, which belongs to a class of medication known as triptans. These drugs help sufferers by attacking the source of the problem, rather than just treating the symptoms. Triptans are usually used when painkillers like ibuprofen and paracetamol are not effective.

Further information on migraines and Maxalt Melt can be found at NHS migraine.

How effective Is Maxalt Melt?

However, in general, when you take the drug, as soon as the symptoms of the migraine appear, it will relieve most of the symptoms. Reports state that more than 75% of patients found triptan medicines, such as Maxalt Melt, to be incredibly effective for improving migraine symptoms.

How does Maxalt Melt work?

It is thought that migraines occur as a result of serotonin - a natural chemical messenger in the brain - causing the blood vessels in the head to widens. Maxalt Melt contracts the vessels back to their normal width, relieving the symptoms associated with migraines.

Experts advise patients to take Maxalt Melt at the onset of a migraine attack, as it works best. In most cases, Maxalt Melt usually takes around 30 minutes to work. However, the exact timeframe may vary depending on when you took the drug and how severe the migraine is.

 However, remember that Maxalt Melt contains the ingredient known as rizatriptan. This particular ingredient is only guaranteed to work for some patients. That is why consult your doctor if you find this medicine ineffective. It may be in your best interests to consider an alternative treatment.

Zomig (Zolmitriptan) 
Nasal Spray (Triptan)
Sumatriptan Tablets (Triptan)
Imigran or Imitrex (Sumatriptan) 
● Aspirin


How should I take Maxalt Melt?

If you are taking this drug in tablet form, you should swallow it with a glass of water. If you are taking it in wafer form, you can simply place it on your tongue and let it dissolve. Maxalt Melt is most effective when taken on an empty stomach. It can also be taken after a meal, although it will take longer to work.
