Default Watch for rebound pain the next day

I take maxalt to try and deal with my diagnosed migraines. I experience migraines 8 to 10 times a month, due to maxalts cost, I can only afford to use it extreme days (maybe 1/4 of the migraines, the ones with vomiting and shaking). Maxalt will alleviate the pain completely if taken within a half hour of the onset of the attack. However, be warned that I experience "rebound" headaches the next day about 50% of the time with a magnitude of about half of the initial migraine. Days when I haven't taken maxalt and take suffer through it I don't have a rebound headache. The melting maxalt is great, since it is impervious to the vomiting.
