What Is Maxalt Melt?

Maxalt melt oral lyphosite wafers contain the active ingredient rizatriptan, which is a type of medicine called a serotonin (or 5HT) agonist. This type of medicine is also commonly known as a 'triptan'. It is a painkiller specifically used to relieve migraine attacks.

During migraines the throbbing head ache is caused by widening of blood vessels in the brain. Maxalt melt relieves this pain by causing the blood vessels in the brain to narrow.

Maxalt melt wafers have the advantage of not having to be taken with water, they simply dissolve in your mouth.
