Maxalt, developed by the world-renowned company, Merck & Co (established in 1891), is a medicine for the effective treatment of migraine headache and other symptoms of migraine. One of the best qualities of this medicine is that it has a limited number of side effects and at the same time it is very effective for treating a number of diseases. Besides this, all the side effects whatsoever are only minor and don’t require any treatment at all.
Maxalt has been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 1998. It works by reducing the swelling in the blood vessels that surround the brain, as this swelling causes extreme pain. It also prevents the generation of such substances, which causes the pain nerve cells to send signals of pain to the brain and also causes other symptoms of migraine, such as nausea. Furthermore, it also cerates (??) an interference in the electrical signals reaching the brain which prevents the sending of pain signals to the brain, thus reducing the agony caused by migraine headaches.
Maxalt is a fast-action drug, as it begins to show its magic in as little as 30 minutes. Clinical studies show that more than 70% of the patients get complete relief from migraine symptoms such as extreme pain, nausea and sensitivity to light and sound within two hours. Additionally, it does not contain aspirin or caffeine.
Maxalt provides Orally Disintegrating tablets (Maxalt-MLT) as well as conventional tablets (MAXALT). Migraine pains can attack any time, anywhere, and the only solution is Maxalt Orally Disintegrating tablet. These tablets are specifically designed while keeping the consumers in mind, who travel a lot or face difficulty in swallowing hard tablets. Maxalt-MLT can be taken without any water or food as they dissolve on the patient’s tongue, thus providing fast action without the hassle of finding a water glass at difficult times. Also as it dissolves on the tongue, it liberates the consumer of the necessity of swallowing a hard tablet, which can be troublesome for some consumers.
Merck & Co, the company to be credited for the development of Maxalt, is so confident of their product that they offer a money back guarantee in case the medicine does not prove to be effective, or the user is not satisfied with the medicine’s performance.
Maxalt should be taken in accordance with the doctor’s prescription in either a 5mg or 10mg dosage, however more than 30mg of Maxalt within 24 hours should be avoided as it can cause adverse effects. Maxalt has only minor side effects such as sleepiness, dizziness, overactive reflexes, restlessness, and loss of coordination. Occasionally it can cause diarrhoea and vomiting. In some rare cases it has been reported to disrupt cardiovascular functions and cause heart attack and stroke, however there is not enough clinical evidence to completely attribute the dysfunction of cardiovascular functions to Maxalt.
