Hi Everyone, Thank you all for sharing your experiences. I too suffer from occasional migraines (1 or 2 per month) and have also had them since I started menstruating and suspect that they are tied to that cycle as they seem to pop up around that time. After trying many different methods and pain-killers, I was finally prescribed Maxalt. (the price made me shudder, but as any migraine sufferer will tell you, you can't put a price on relief) I've been taking it for about a year now and lately (last two times I took it) I've noticed that if I don't take a nap immediately after for about 30 mins to an hour, I experience slurred speech, tightness in my throat and chest area and I can't find the right words when I'm trying to communicate. I guess I was starting to think I could just pop a melt and go on with my usual tasks and be just fine, but found that I definitely need to lie down to get the best results. P.S. I really, really hope this pill doesn't lose it's efficacy over time! Thanks!
