Our expert says:
You should let your doctor know that the Maxalt does not relieve the pain - he may need to try another kind of tablet like Zomig. Also tell him about the side effects you have on the anti-epileptic, he could try another type of medicine like Beta blockers or tricyclic antidepressants as preventative medication instead, or he may need to lower the dose until your body gets used to it. In the end there are a few things that will work for severe migraine, but the treatment needs to be adjusted for you specifically.
