Maxalt-MLT is a medication used for the treatment of migraine attacks in adults and is a member of a class of drugs called selective 5-HT1B/1D receptor agonists.

Maxalt-MLT helps in relieving headaches, pain, and other migraine symptoms (including nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light/sound).

The efficacy of Maxalt-MLT was established in two multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled trials.

Use and Dosage

Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking rizatriptan and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Take this medication as directed by your doctor, at the first sign of a migraine. Handle the tablets with dry hands. Place the tablet on your tongue, allow it to dissolve, and swallow with your saliva. You do not need to take this medication with water or other liquid. It may be taken with or without food, but it may work faster when taken on an empty stomach.

Do not break or crush the tablets. If you are using the individually wrapped tablets, do not open the outer pouch until the dose is needed. Peel the foil back and carefully remove the tablet from the blister pack immediately before taking your dose. If you are using the tablets from a bottle, leave the tablets in the bottle they came in until you are ready to take a dose. Keep the bottle tightly closed between uses.

The dosage is based on your medical condition, response to treatment, age, and other medications you may be taking. For children, the dosage is also based on weight. Be sure to tell your doctor and pharmacist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products).

If there is no improvement in your symptoms, do not take more doses of this medication before talking to your doctor. If your symptoms are only partly relieved, or if your headache comes back, adults may take another dose at least 2 hours after the first dose. Children should not take more than one dose, or 5 milligrams in 24 hours. For adults, the US manufacturer recommends a maximum dose of 30 milligrams in 24 hours. The Canadian manufacturer recommends a maximum dose of 20 milligrams (for adults) in 24 hours.

If you have a higher risk for heart problems (see Precautions), your doctor may perform a heart exam before you start taking rizatriptan. He/she may also direct you to take your first dose of this medication in the office/clinic to monitor for serious side effects (such as chest pain). Talk to your doctor for details.

If you are using drugs for migraine attacks on 10 or more days each month, the drugs may make your headaches worse (medication overuse headache). Do not use medications more often or for longer than directed. Tell your doctor if you need to use this medication more often, if the medication is not working, or if your headaches get worse.

Side Effects

Get emergency medical help if you have signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

Maxalt-MLT may cause serious side effects. Stop using Maxalt-MLT and call your doctor at once if you have:

  • Sudden and severe stomach pain and bloody diarrhea

  • Severe headache, blurred vision, or pounding in your neck or ears
  • Heart attack symptoms–chest pain or pressure, pain spreading to your jaw or shoulder, nausea, or sweating

Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history, especially of: blood circulation problems (for example, in your legs, arms/hands, or stomach), certain types of headaches (hemiplegic or basilar migraine), heart problems (such as chest pain, irregular heartbeat, and previous heart attack), liver disease, seizure, stroke or “mini-stroke” (transient ischemic attack).

Certain conditions can increase your risk for heart problems. Tell your doctor if you have any of these conditions, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, family history of heart disease, overweight, smoker, postmenopausal (women), or age more than 40 years (men).

This drug may make you dizzy or drowsy. Alcohol or marijuana (cannabis) can make you more dizzy or drowsy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs alertness until you can do it safely. Limit alcoholic beverages. Talk to your doctor if you are using marijuana (cannabis).

This medication may contain aspartame. If you have phenylketonuria (PKU) or any other condition that requires you to limit/avoid aspartame (or phenylalanine) in your diet, ask your doctor or pharmacist about using this medication safely.

Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products).

The risk of heart disease, liver disease, and high blood pressure increases with age. Older adults may be more sensitive to the side effects of this drug, especially increased blood pressure and heart problems.

During pregnancy, this medication should be used only when needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.
