A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
Chemical Name: RIZATRIPTAN (rye-za-TRIP-tan)
Maxalt (migraine medicine) works by narrowing down the blood vessels around the brain. It reduces the amount of triggering substances in the body that may cause headache pain, nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, and other migraine symptoms.
Maxalt is used to relieve migraine headache symptoms. However, it will not prevent migraine headaches or reduce the number of headaches that you might witness.
Rizatriptan is not used for the treatment of a common headache, a headache that causes loss of movement on one side of your body, or any headache that is different from the usual migraine headaches. Use this medication only if your doctor prescribes or approves of it with regard to your condition.
You can purchase Maxalt 10 mg online from Canada Pharmacy.
Once you have taken Maxalt, wait for at least two hours before taking another dose. You must not take more than 30 mg of rizatriptan in 24 hours.
This medication must not be taken if you are allergic to rizatriptan, if you have any history of heart disease, or if you have coronary heart disease, angina, blood circulation problems, lack of blood supply to the heart, uncontrolled high blood pressure, ischemic bowel disease, a history of a heart attack or stroke, or if your headache seems to be different from your usual migraine headaches.
All kinds of Maxalt generic contain rizatriptan benzoate, a selective 5-hydroxytryptamine1B/1D (5-HT1B/1D) receptor agonist.
