Description of Maxalt

What is Maxalt?

Maxalt is used to treat the headache phase of migraine attacks, it belongs to class of drugs known as triptans. It contains the active ingredient Rizatriptan, which specifically works by selectively activating certain serotonin receptors, known as 5-HT1B and 5-HT1D receptors, which are found on the blood vessels in the brain.  

How does it work?

Migraine symptoms are caused by temporary widening of the blood vessels in the head. Maxalt causes the blood vessels to constrict, reducing the blood flow to the brain and relieving the symptoms of migraines, such as headache, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound.

Is Maxalt suitable for me?

Maxalt is intended for use by adults only. It is important to note that it is not a preventative medication for migraines and should only be taken when a migraine has already started. It is also not effective for other types of headaches. This medication may not be suitable for you if you have the following:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Uncontrolled hypertension
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Liver diseases
  • Allergies to the triptans


Dosage of Maxalt

Commonly Used Dosage Guidelines for Maxalt.

For tablets:

  • 1 tablet at the onset of symptoms; dose may be repeated after at least 2 hours if migraine recurs; maximum of 2 tablets in 24 hours. 

For orodispersible tablets:

  • Take 1 tablet dissolved on the tongue, take at the onset of symptoms; dose may be repeated after at least 2 hours if migraine recurs; maximum of 2 tablets in 24 hours.
