Wasn't sure there was a difference between Maxalt and Maxalt MLT until I went to take it.
aew1 all states are different here in oregon NO but you can call the doctor and have them over the phone change it to the one you want..or have used before.Also if this pharmacy has dispenced the mlt to you before than i would change it but if not or to be safe Take the prescription into your pharmacy and tell them the problem and see if they well change it or call the doctor.And being its friday If it was me i would back it up with a call to the office myself... Have a fantastic weekend migraine free..Chuck1957
My experience is that it depends on (a) what your health insurance allows and (b) how the pharmacy does business. I would just ask the pharmacy for the MLT version and see whether they'll fill it for you. If that doesn't work, then tell your doctor that you need him/her to change the prescription. If the MLT version will work better for you, then that's what your doctor should be prescribing.
I'm not familiar with the MLT version. How is it different from (better than) regular Maxalt?
Also, does anyone know if you can still get the brand Maxalt instead of a generic version? I was doing fine with the "real" Maxalt; then my pharmacy switched to generic (Aurobindo) which is awful. It doesn't work nearly as well, the packaging is a nightmare to open (if you don't have scissors handy, forget about getting the tablet out of its blister pack), it dissolves very slowly and tastes bad, too. I could live with the hard-to-open packaging, the slow dissolve and the bad taste if I got the same results as before, but it's definitely MUCH less effective.
If the brand Maxalt isn't manufactured anymore, has anyone found a good generic brand to use? I've seen negative comments for some generic brands besides Aurobindo. I really want to switch from Aurobindo, but only if I can get a better generic. Otherwise, I could be going from the frying pan to the fire!
