another "triptan" for migraines...Maxalt (rizatriptan)

Make room on your shelves for another "triptan" formigraines...Maxalt (rizatriptan) from Merck.

It's the fourth triptan...after Imitrex (sumatriptan), Zomig(zolmitriptan), and Amerge (naratriptan).

Maxalt has a similar onset and duration as Zomig and Imitrextabs. All three work faster than Amerge...but Amerge lasts longer.
