Default Maxalt works

My 13 year old son has been experiencing uncontrolable migraines for the last 2 years. He wakes in the middle of the night usually without any precurser that he's going to have a headache. His doctor had tried him on a wide range of drugs to prevent the headaches but they just made him sick and tired all the time. He tried Imitrex, but had a severe allergic reaction. Finally he was prescribed Maxalt. When he wakes with a headache or feels one coming on he takes a 10mg. It usually works within 30 minutes, but it makes him go to sleep. I'd love to find something that works as well without the need to sleep and feel "out of it".
