I have been suffering from depression for a while (years) on and off. I was diagnosed with MS (and depression and MS some times go hand and hand). However, I get SEVERELY depressed and after keeping a general have discovered it's every time I take my Maxalt. I only get 9 a month (insurance) but I get 8-19 migraines a month so I try to pick and choose when to take one. But the next day after I take one I am SEVERELY depressed... sducidal even. Has anyone else come across this issue? I need to report it but don't know how.
Hi, Kimberly! I'm sorry to hear that you're having such a severe problem. Is your doctor aware of this depressive side effect?
Depression is listed as a less common side effect but yours sounds particularly serious. Start with notifying your doctor. The following link describes the side effects of rizatriptan and at the very bottom of the page is a blue hyperlink link to the FDA for reporting side effects.
Best regards and I hope you can find a solution.
