Default Maxalt

I have been taking Maxalt when necessary for approximately 3 years. My headache starts with flashing lights which in itself makes me feel giddy and sick. Maxalt relieves those symptoms in a short space of time but I am left feeling completely washed out and cannot concentrate. The relief from the initial symptoms is great but don't like how I feel afterwards especially if I am at work.

I have just noticed the same thing. I have had lower back pain since taking maxalt. I was blaming it on Elavil which does not make sense but then I realized it was following maxalt. I have had PT and I exercise at home. Nothing has helped. Unfortunately my headaches are so bad right now I can't stop taking Maxalt. I just started Topamax and hope it works.
