(Rizatriptan Benzoate)

Maxalt Mlt is used to treat acute migraine headaches, but it is not used to prevent migraine headaches, nor is it used for cluster headaches. Maxalt Mlt comes in the form of an orally disintegrating tablet (unlike Maxalt which is a conventional tablet), to make it easier for patients suffering from vomiting to take. Maxalt Mlt works on the brain to help relieve the pain caused by migraine headaches. Maxalt Mlt often relieves other symptoms that occur along with a migraine headache, such as nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to sound and sensitivity to light. Maxalt Mlt is not a typical pain reliever. Thus it cannot relieve any kind of pain except for that caused by migraine headaches. Maxalt Mlt is usually prescribed in cases where headaches are not relieved by acetaminophen, aspirin, or other pain relievers. T he generic name for Maxalt Mlt is rizatriptan. Maxalt Mlt 5 mg orally disintegrating tablets are extremely expensive, costing around $705 18.
