Maxalt has been approved for the acute treatment of migraine headaches. Maxalt is the first and only migraine drug available not only in conventional tablets, but also in a fast-dissolving tablet formulation (disintegrated on the tongue, no water needed).

In clinical studies it was found that approximately 70% of patients who took Maxalt 10mg reported pain relief at two hours, while 60% of patients who took the 5mg dose reported pain relief at two hours as well. Both formulations will be made available in 10mg and 5mg strengths.
