I was researching my new med, maxalt, and I came upon this quote--i know I appreciate it, i hope others do also!!
"A migraine is like a tornado. It attacks fast, usually without warning, and wreaks havoc regardless of what's going on in your life at that moment."
Stephen Silberstein, M.D., Director of the Jefferson Headache Clinic in Philadelphia
I tried maxalt for the first time today. WOW. The throbbing pain in my left temple is down to a 2 and I can actually open my eyes completely without wincing at the light....The med is quick acting and seems to be somewhat successful. It is a type of med that I can only take 2 in 24 hrs and 4 in a week, so we will see how successful it really is.
wish me luck!
