How to take Maxalt Melt

Maxalt Melt is easy to take as wafer tablets that melt in your mouth. These Maxalt Melt wafer tablets are also known as oral lyophilisates and you do not need water to swallow them.

You should only take a Maxalt Melt wafer tablet when your migraine headache starts. So when you need to take a Maxalt Melt:

  1. Open the hard plastic blue case and take out 1 foil blister with a Maxalt Melt 10mg wafer tablet inside.
  2. Check the back of the foil blister for any damage. If you see any cuts or tears, do not use that wafer tablet, instead put it to 1 side for disposal later. If there’s no damage, peel back the foil with clean and dry hands to take out the wafer tablet.
  3. Place the Maxalt Melt wafer tablet on your tongue and it’ll instantly dissolve in your mouth so you can swallow it with saliva. Maxalt Melt will work faster if you take it on an empty stomach, but you should still take it if you have just eaten.
  4. If your migraine headache returns, you can take another wafer tablet, but you need to wait at least 2 hours after your first dose.

If your migraine headache does not go away after 2 hours, you should not take a second dose for the same attack. Call a doctor or 111 for advice.

  1. Do not take more than 2 Maxalt Melt wafer tablets in a 24 hour period.
