Rizatriptan Benzoate

Drug Info for rizatriptan benzoate

Rizatriptan is used to treat the symptoms of migraine headaches (severe, throbbing headaches that sometimes are accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to sound and light). Rizatriptan is in a class of medications called selective serotonin receptor agonists. It works by narrowing blood vessels in the brain, stopping pain signals from being sent to the brain, and blocking the release of certain natural substances that cause pain, nausea, and other symptoms of migraine. Rizatriptan does not prevent migraine attacks or reduce the number of headaches you have.

Maxalt-MLT is an antimigraine medication used to treat migraine symptoms. Rizatriptan is the generic version. On average Maxalt-MLT is priced at about $392 for a supply of 9, 10 mg disintegrating tablets. Luckily, you can use our OptionRx savings offer to receive a Maxalt-MLT discount of up to 80% off the retail price at participating pharmacies near you.
