I am wondering if this is a side effect of the drug? I do not have the achy feeling with the migraine, only after I take the medication. Maxalt has been a miracle drug for my migraines as well... I have trialed others, and this one works for me! The Ache seems to be in the joints of my fingers and neck, and shoulders and back... I have really made a point of taking note when the achy pain starts and it is always within an hour of taking the Maxalt. It is worth it for the relief of the migraine, but curious if anyone else has had this side effect?
