Buy Maxalt Melts Online

Maxalt Melt tablets - also known as Maxalt-Mlt - are an effective migraine treatment manufactured by Organon Pharma Ltd.

Unlike other migraine tablets, Maxalt Melt tablets quickly dissolve on your tongue. This makes them suitable for people who have difficulty taking normal tablets, and those who experience vomiting or sickness during a migraine attack. The tablets are peppermint flavoured to make them more palatable to take.

In the UK, Maxalt is only available on prescription. With our online service, you can get a private prescription for migraine tablets online and have the treatment delivered directly to your door.

To get started, simply fill out our online medical form to be reviewed by one of our online prescribers.

If your order is approved by our prescriber before 3pm on weekdays, you can get relief from migraines the next day.

How Do Maxalt Melt Work?

Maxalt Melt tablets contain rizatriptan in the form of rizatriptan benzoate.

When taken, rizatriptan constricts the blood vessels, making it harder for pain signals from being sent to the brain. It also blocks certain substances that cause painful migraine symptoms.

While Maxalt Melt tablets can't prevent a migraine from happening, they can reduce symptoms once a migraine attack has begun.

How long do Maxalt Melt take to work?

Maxalt Melt can start working within 30 minutes for some people. However, it can take up to an hour for Maxalt Melt to start working.

How To Take Maxalt Melt For Migraine

The usual dose of Maxalt Melt is 10mg. Our online prescriber can discuss the most appropriate dosage for you.

Maxalt Melt can be taken with or without food. However, it is best to take Maxalt Melt on an empty stomach.

Take Maxalt Melt as soon as you can after your headache occurs. Maxalt Melt does not prevent a migraine from occurring and should not be taken during the onset of an aura.

Maxalt Melt tablets are designed to quickly dissolve in your mouth.

Do not take more than 2 doses of Maxalt Melt in any 24-hour period.

If your migraine returns within 24 hours of taking Maxalt Melt, you can take a second dose. You must leave at least 2 hours between each dose.

If your migraine does not subside after 2 hours of taking Maxalt, do not take another dose of Maxalt Melt for the same migraine attack.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I accidentally take too much Maxalt Melt?

If you accidentally take more Maxalt Melt than you should, seek immediate medical attention. Take the packaging and any remaining medicine with you, so that doctors treating you know exactly what and how much you took.

Will Maxalt Melt impact my ability to drive or operate machinery?

Rizatriptan may cause side effects including tiredness and dizziness. If Maxalt Melt causes these side effects, do not drive or operate machinery until you feel that it is safe to do so.

Can I drink alcohol while taking Maxalt Melts?

While it is safe to drink alcohol in moderation while taking rizatriptan, you may choose to avoid drinking alcohol if it triggers a migraine attack.

Alcohol may exacerbate certain side effects of Maxalt Melts, such as tiredness or dizziness.

Avoid drinking more than 14 units a week, as per the government guidelines.

Can I take Maxalt Melts with paracetamol or other pain relief?

You can take other pain relief, such as paracetamol, aspirin or ibuprofen, if your initial dose of rizatriptan does not relieve your migraine.

Rizatriptan is only effective at treating migraine headaches. It is not a traditional painkiller and does not relieve other kinds of pain.

Can I buy Maxalt Melt over the counter?

In the UK, Maxalt Melt is only available on prescription, and therefore cannot be obtained over the counter. However, our online prescribers can issue private prescriptions for Maxalt Melt tablets following an online consultation.
