maxalt, a migraine drug as bad as the problem it solves

Toronto, 2014.06.11

It's official, I can not take the migraine drug "Maxalt" without developing chest pains and winding up in the hospital. The word comes from both the neurologist and the cardiologist I visited in separate excursions to figure out what happened last week. I wound up being taken to the hospital with chest pains after taking three doses of Maxalt within a week, but apparently that was too much. I don't know what I'll do without a replacement for the drug I used for 25 years, that's now been yanked from the market, but I guess I'll muddle through. It's amazing to me that they sell this stuff; look at these side effects! It's been more than a week since my little bout last week and it's still not cleared up.
