I have hormone related migraines which last a week every month. I have been prescribed maxalt melt 10mg wafers and I'm nervous of any side effects, especially sickness. Has anyone had any experience of these? Do they work - any side effects? Also I have been taking neurophen and I'm wondering if they are compatible. Thank you in advance to anyone who takes time to reply.
I take Maxalt Wafers for occasional migraine. They work very well. Best if you take at first sign of onset. If I have to take one I usually lie down for a bit, they can make you drowsy and I go out like a light. No sickness, just the drowsiness.
I take these for my migraine. They do knock me out initially, but make the migraine pass much more quickly than if I'd not taken them. My migraine can last 2 or 3 days, but only 24 hours if I take a Maxalt in time
Oh thank you so much for all the replies. I am on antibiotics at the moment so will wait till I've finished those. Will take if I still have tomorrow. Head is agony and the migraines make me sick too so have the fear of sickness. On neurofen at the moment but they don't do much really. I hope you all don't suffer too much - migraines are evil (I have only had them since having my daughter, never even had a headache before then). I feel for anyone who suffers this. Thanks again 💕
I used to take them They did work. I got a strange tight feeling around my face which was not pleasant but better than the migraine Since I had a daith piercing I haven't needed to use them The piercing would be my recommendation, it's changed my life
I used to use them The only side effect was a strange tight feeling over my face. It wasn't pleasant but not as bad as the migraine I haven't needed them since I had a daith piercing That's what I would recommend, it's changed my life
