  • A fast heartbeat (tachycardia)

  • Fever
  • Sweating

Rare Side Effects of Maxalt

In research studies, some side effects happened in only 1 percent or less of people taking Maxalt. Because they are so uncommon, it is difficult to tell whether these side effects are because of Maxalt or something else.
Some of these rare side effects of Maxalt include but are not limited to:
  • Warm or cold sensations
  • Sensation of a rapidly or forcefully beating heart (palpitations)
  • Diarrhea or vomiting
  • Shakiness (tremors)
  • Flushing (redness of skin, especially the face)
  • Hot flashes.
