Maxalt versus Maxalt MLT

Post  msmolly on Thu Nov 04, 2010 10:31 am

I am changing health insurance providers, and the new one has Maxalt in the formulary but not Maxalt MLT. I can request an exception, but was wondering if anyone here had tried both and what the difference is. I assume MLT just works faster since it is orally disintegrating. Can anyone help?

Thanks,
Molly

Maxalt

Post  pilot57 on Thu Nov 04, 2010 10:54 am

I took Maxalt for years (but not for the past couple of years). I became very tired of the MLT's and their minty flavor, so switched to the Maxalt tablets. The tablets had the same effectiveness.

Hope this helps.

Thank you! I think I will ask my doc for a sample of the Maxalt tablets, then.

molly, i've taken the regular maxalt for about 12 years. the MLT has an MSG component in it, which makes me much worse.

you might find you like the regular better. it works fast for me because i chew them up! (you should ask your pharmacist before you do this, but i've been able to get away with it for oh, at least 6 years.). dianne

I couldnt get on with the melt. Strange tang to it. I took Maxalt for about 5 years before it lost its effectiveness and I changed to Frova.

sublingual absorption

My neurologist had me do the MLT version because I get severe gastroparesis during migraines and pills just sit in my stomach and I often throw them up before they are absorbed.

Supposably, by letting these melt under your tounge, some of it gets absorbed directly into your bloodstream.

However, the study summary here says the regular tablet gets absorbed more quickly, although it did say the sublingual might be better if you throw up pills. http://secure.pharmacytimes.com/lessons/html/migraine.htm

So I guess the only advantage of the MLT (assuming you don't throw up) is that you can take it without water, making it more conveninet when you are on the road or something.

I can recommend a reputable pharmacy (Maxalt) - onlinecheappills.com I received the order and it was on time and the pills work great.

I can't use the MLT version because it contains aspartame. That's one of my biggest controllable triggers.

maxalt vs. maxalt-mlt

Post  dailyha-rose on Thu Feb 23, 2012 8:28 am

hi,

i tried both of these quite a while ago for M.

they did not work but as a side note, i am glad i kept the containers the maxalt-mlt came in.

trying zofran 4mg. for vomiting and was going to store the foil packs in the old maxalt-mlt containers.
seems more efficient storage and more protective than the zofran box.

hope this works out for you.
