Maxalt Melt 10mg 3 Pack

Maxalt Melt contains the active ingredient Rizatriptan which belongs to a class of medicines called selective serotonin 5-HT1B / 1D receptor agonists, also known as "triptans" for short.

Triptans are very effective in stopping a migraine from reaching its full intensity.

When taken at the onset of a migraine, Rizatriptan can effectively stop a migraine from developing and thus prevent any disruption to the patients life beyond that point.

The Maxalt Melt Wafers are particularly helpful in patients who experience migraines along with nausea and vomitting. When placed on the tongue the wafer releases the drug slowly and patients are less likely to vomit after using them as they do not need to swallow any solid. 

Usually a single dose of Maxalt Melt 10mg is enough stop a migraine.

If your condition worsens, seek medical attention.

How to administer MAXALT oral lyophilisates, MAXALT (rizatriptan benzoate) is available as a 5 or 10 mg oral lyophilisate that dissolves in the mouth.
