Maxalt (rizatriptan) is used in the treatment of headaches, and works by narrowing the blood vessels that surround the brain. It also reduces substances in the body that cause headache symptoms such as sensitivity to light and sound, as well as other migraine symptoms. Maxalt is used in the treatment of migraine headaches and will only treat headaches that have already begun. Maxalt does not prevent headaches or migraines. Your doctor may prescribe it for additional purposes as well.
