I take Maxalt which is rizatriptan. The instructions are very clear that the drug should not be taken until the headache starts. However if I wait until then the drug is ineffective. I find that, contrary to the manufacturer's guidance notes, if I take the drug the moment the aura starts then not only does it work really well but it actually reduces the length and intensity of the aura.
So am I just odd or have the manufacturers got it wrong?
Has anyone else had the same experience?
