In Reply to: Maxalt or Imitrex tabs??? posted by Hillbilly's girl on March 26, 2001 at 15:01:39:
Are you taking the tablet form of both types of these meds? If so, you will probably find that they don't work very fast. If you have the Maxalt-MLT, it will work relatively quickly, usually in less than 30 min. I have used the Maxalt for several months now and feel that it may have lost some of its effectiveness, as it doesn't always work as fast and I often take two at a time to kill a headache because one just won't get it done. If imitrex injections is an option, get them. If it works for you, it is by far the fastest acting abortive out there. Many here use oxygen as an abortive with exellent success. Keep digging. You will find a combination of meds that will help. I doubt there is a combination that has not been tried by at least one person on this board. There are a bunch of smart cookie on this board. Stay close to them and they can help. Good Luck.
