rizatriptan-benzoate
(Maxalt-MLT)

Rizatriptan Benzoate is used to treat acute migraine headaches, but it is not used to prevent migraine headaches, nor is it used for cluster headaches. Rizatriptan Benzoate can come in the form of an orally disintegrating tablet, to make it easier for patients suffering from vomiting to take. Rizatriptan Benzoate works on the brain to help relieve the pain caused by migraine headaches. Rizatriptan Benzoate often relieves other symptoms that occur along with a migraine headache, such as nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to sound and sensitivity to light. Rizatriptan Benzoate is not a typical pain reliever. Thus it cannot relieve any kind of pain except for that caused by migraine headaches. Rizatriptan Benzoate is usually prescribed in cases where headaches are not relieved by acetaminophen, aspirin, or other pain relievers. The generic name for Rizatriptan Benzoate is rizatriptan. Rizatriptan Benzoate 5 mg tablets cost around $70 for 7. You can buy your Rizatriptan Benzoate prescription at a far lower price, simply by using our Rizatriptan Benzoate coupon card.
