Common Questions and Answers about Maxalt and naproxen

maxalt

I have been seeing a neuro for about 6 yrs, and have had all the test, CT's, MRI's and have been on about every preventative known with out success. So, now i just take the low dose Maxalt 5mg and daily advil. I have tried Pamelor, and elavil for preventative in the begining, because i have not always had migraines. its been about 7 yrs now, before that i just had headaches.
maxalt-mlt and axert. As an acute medication, I still have very good things to say about Maxalt-MLT. My preventative treatment plan currently includes: Topamax (the anticonvulsant) and Nadolol (the Beta Blocker) and Botox Injections. I also take anywhere from 300mg to 600mg of Magnesium a day and 300mg of Coenzyme Q10. My acute treatment plan is quite detailed.
I also have found great success with Maxalt-MLTs. Although, everyone is different and all of the triptans on the market have been proven effective in clinical trials, so if you do have migraines then please discuss with your doctor which triptan would be the most appropriate in your situation. The only problem that I note here with treating these headaches with triptans, if the headaches do turn out to be migraines, is that triptans may be contraindicated.
I get headachs on an off and some are fairly nasty but I only use Naproxen and Ibuprophen because I am sensitive to other stronger drugs. I do have an accupuncturist that has given me several hints for my headachs that work well and I can do them on my own and if I get one that is just too awful then I may go in for a treatment. I wish I could get something to make them just quit but for now I guess I just do what I can.
i had some form of pain 4 out of 6 days, to having about 4-6 a month. i now just take an NSAID naproxen when i have one and it goes away. have you tried acupuncture? that worked really well for me, and it also might help with your neck pain too.
H) It looks like you've tried a number of pain medications, neurological drugs, a migraine abortive medication (Maxalt), antibiotics (do you get frequent infections?) and you took something for a bowel clean out- maybe had a colonoscopy? Has any of the pain medication, neurological drugs or the migraine abortive been of any help? Have you had any rebound migraines from the pain meds or after taking Maxalt?
I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.

They started her on Indocin for the hemicrania continua in addition to Topamax and Elavil. The indocin wasn't working and she began having more nausea and vomitting with her migraines, so it was stopped. Instead she is now taking phenergan and vicodin as needed with the maxalt for her migraines. Unfortunately, none of this seems to be helping her frequency, duration, and severity is as bad if not worse. I really need suggestions. She had an MRI last week and it was normal.
When the migraines get bad I become very dizzy, vomit frequently and have loose stools-I also shiver, my toes and fingers turn white and sometimes have numbness and pain in my joints/muscles. I am presently seeing a neurologist and am on nortriptyline 40mg daily and take Imitrex 100mg when I get migraines-I also sometimes take excedrin migraine. . I am really at a loss what to do next. Ialso get very tired and achy before a really bad migraine and feel completely spaced out.
I was put on tompamax(only taking 50mg, wont go to 100mg like I am suppose to) and maxalt. Since then, have been tracking triggers and symptoms. I only seem to have episodes 2-4 days before menstation and ovulation (also, menstration is becoming irregular) (Also, during 2-4 days hot shower trigger episodes everytime). So, went to gyno, she thinks these are hormone related.
I personally use Zomig Nasal Spray and find it works extremely well. I also have found great success with Maxalt-MLTs. Although, everyone is different and all of the triptans on the market have been proven effective in clinical trials, so please discuss with the doctor in the clinic which triptan would be the most appropriate in your situation. Although, if you want to go in suggesting something...
The same Dr gave me Naproxen and hydracodone but i cannot take the hydracodone as it upsets my stomach and basically does not allow me to function.The front and back of my head hurt as do my neck and jaw. My vision is fuzzy at times and it is difficult to do my job which requires much detail and work on a computer. Also had a moment where I would look at a particular document and know that I was upposed to do something with it but for a few seconds did not not know what to do.
Hello Everyone, I'm 22 and just graduated University. I have been having migraines since I was about 7 years old now. However, over the years they have seemed to get much worse. I thought that the higher frequency could have been from my lack of sleep and bad diet that I had throughout high school and college. Now that I have been out of college for over a month now the migraines haven't seemed to subside.
I personally use Zomig Nasal Spray and find it works extremely well. I also have found great success with Maxalt-MLTs. Statistically, compared to the other triptans, Imitrex Injection, Zomig Nasal Spray and Maxalt-MLTs have the highest success rates for total pain relief in the shortest amount of time.
I was diagnosed with Cluster Headaches when I was 16 and put on various muscle relaxers to try to help but they never went away. My doctor at the time said they couldn't give me anything else stronger because I wouldn't be able to function in school, so I stopped taking everything and just went on my merry way dealing with headaches everyday (after awhile you kind of get used to them!
I am 50 now and have migraines off and on since I was 17. I was prescribed fiorinal and it worked! I had suffered almost a week and was so sick but within 15 min of taking it, it was gone. But now, the doctors do not like to give this to me. I have no heart issues. No diabetes. Can you explain?
Usually I get 1-2 per week, but for the past month have had one long migraine that will not respond to treatment. I have of course tried my normal Naproxen, Maxalt, and Phenergan combination which usually works as my first line cocktail, and I was admitted to the hospital a month ago for DHE 45 infusions (that didn't really do much). For the most part, I am stuck with this daily migraine that is starting to respond less and less to treatment.
Unlike other NSAIDS and over-the-counter medications, Naproxen will not cause rebound headaches and so it can be taken by those with migraines. You can take Naproxen on its own if you cannot take triptans. If you can take triptans, you can combine your triptan with Naproxen in order to make your acute treatment plan more effective. Only combine medications if a doctor has prescribed them to you in combination. Never combine medications without first checking with a pharmacist.
I've been experiencing daily tension headaches which get a lot worse later in the day and my neuro doc suggested I take Topamax and a low dose of Elavil (10mg) at night. Anyone knows anything about these drugs? Do they alleviate headaches? I really don't want anything to do with tricyclic antidepressants like Elavil, but if it helps.... Thanks!
i have been on opioids, stadol, oxy over 30 years - - then the 75mg fentanyl stopped working and i was labeled an addict. i have been off the patch since April and off Ritalin since June and xanax since may. my migraines have been at the worst and increase in frequency. no doctor has given me a plan or what i can try. I'm doing yoga, meditation, massage as alternatives....my quality of life is null and void. i need pain relief soon! any ideas?
Imitrex Injection is rarely used since it is an injection, but Zomig Nasap Spray or Maxalt-MLTs are simple to take and usually work for most people. Sometimes people use a medication called Naproxen in combination with their triptans, and that works very well. Sometimes people use an antiemetic along with a pain killer (such as Tylenol+Codeine OR Naproxen) OR triptan, one of the most effective antiemetics for migraines is Metoclopramide.
so, you could maybe, if your doctor thought it was a good idea, mix up your treatment plan by using Imitrex sometimes and Naproxen sometimes, IF the Naproxen worked. Otherwise... talk to your doctor about other non-triptan options for pain control. AND... most important, get your doctor to switch you to a new preventative, because the ELATROLET isn't working for you (it didn't work for me either!).

Although, everyone is different and all of the triptans on the market have been proven effective in clinical trials, so please discuss with your doctor which triptan would be the most appropriate in your situation. Metoclopramide is a particularly useful medication for those who suffer from vomiting as one of their migraine symptoms.
Most people with migraines can find relief through acute treatment, using medications such as Triptans, pain killers, NSAIDs and antiemetics. The quickly absorbing tripans work the best, such as Zomig Nasal Spray or Maxalt MLTs. Naproxen is a NSAID that is less likely to cause rebound headaches than other NSAIDs. Metoclopramide is an antiemetic that can improve how well other migraine medications work if taken at the same time.
well, actually it was my doctor's idea, because I asked him about Treximet and he told me I could just take my regular triptan and naproxen at the same time. Also, oh, I didn't put Treximet down as an option, I am so sorry!! It's so new that I completely forgot about it! Oops, umm... for anyone taking it just put Imitrex down I guess since that is the triptan in the medication. And then explain about it in the comments? I am really sorry about that!!!
I have seen 2 neurologists who diagnosed me with migraines and prescribed me Treximet and Maxalt, neither did anything at all. I agree that my previous old throbbing headaches are migraine, but I really feel that this is something different and that the docs dont really know so they try to fit me into the migraine catagory. But I have no nausea and these headaches are so sudden. I dont know where to go next, could you please advise, and any ideas as to what this might be would be appreciated.
I also have found great success with Maxalt-MLTs. Although, everyone is different and all of the triptans on the market have been proven effective in clinical trials, so please discuss with your doctor which triptan would be the most appropriate in your situation. Other acute Migraine medications include analgesics and antiemetics. An analgesic that is often prescribed for migraine headaches is Naproxen.
Treximet is the only triptan on the market that combines naproxen and a triptan together in one drug... BUT, you and your doctor can easily do this yourself by combining 2 prescriptions together, you don't NEED to take treximet to do this!! You can take zomig + naproxen (it's a nasal spray triptan + the tablet naproxen) OR maxalt + naproxen (a quick dissolve tablet triptan + the tablet naproxen) OR injectable sumatriptan + naproxen (it's an injectable triptan + the tablet naproxen).
