I Currently Use Maxalt. Are There Any Other Meds That Are Comparable To Maxalt? Or That You Think

I have used Maxalt for several years. It was the only medication that worked for me at the time that I was diagnosed (in 1999). My insurance has just upped my co-pay to $100 for this medecine, so I am looking for something new that will work for me. I know Imitrex doesn't work, but I don't remember any of the other meds I tried. Are there any other meds that are comparable to Maxalt? Or that you think might work as well?

Answer

Hi cyan,

Other abortive medications (that some a Migraine) like Maxalt and Imitrex include: Axert, Amerge, Relpax, Zomig, Frova, and the newest one Treximet. You and your doctor will have to decide which one is right for you.

GOod luck
