Welcome to Healing Well. I am quite concerned about the reaction that you have had with Maxalt, I am not a doctor, but would suggest you talk to your doctor about this reaction as soon as possible and do not take another until you have spoken to your doctor.
I do not want you to worry, it may be that what you have experienced is one of the side-effects that Maxalt has, but I think you need to be sure!
Maxalt is one of the triptan drugs, I have not tried this one personally ( I take sumatriptan injections) so cannot identify with what you have experienced. But I am sure there will be someone along soon that can offer you something better.
Take care and keep us posted as to how you get on Ann.
