Currently using Maxalt. I seem to be good on one of the quick-relievers for a while and then have to switch up.

Maxalt work to get rid of the migraine, only if I catch it in the very beginning stage. If it is full blown, the Maxalt does not provide any relief. Maxalt causes nausea and sleepiness and really upsets my stomach for the remainder of the day and sometimes the next day.
