Maxalt® (rizatriptan benzoate) is a migraine medication that is approved for use in adults as well as children as young as six years of age. This prescription drug comes in the form of a tablet. It is designed to be taken as soon as possible once a migraine starts -- it is not meant to be taken to prevent migraines.
If your migraine comes back after taking it, or if it does not go away at all, let your healthcare provider know. You may need to take a second dose after waiting at least two hours from the time you took the first dose.
