Smile Maxalt is my miracle!

I have had migraines all my life but wouldn't admit they were migraines. About 9 years ago my doctor gave me samples of Maxalt. I was afraid to take it at first but was tired of the 3 day and 3 night headaches and taking so many pain pills I felt like I was in a drug stupor but still had the headache. The first Maxalt I took stopped the headache in 45 minutes. I thought it was a fluke. It wasn't a real migraine. Since then I have never had a migraine that Maxalt didn't knock out in 45 minutes. Lately I have had to take one a day for about 3 or four days. Some months I have about 3 migraines - other times I can go about 2 months without one. My doctor suggested Frova. It took 4 hours for it to stop the headache but is supposed to stop the rebound headaches the Maxalt has started causing. Don't think I will trade it for the Maxalt though. I like the 45 minute relief.
