I'm in the tight spot of not being able to afford Maxalt anymore. When I began it, it was around $10/pill; now it's up to $26-$28/pill. Imitrex didn't work for me either, so I've got to find another affordable

Imitrex worked - it's generic now.
It is funny how we are all so different. I have so many allergies and intolerances which limits what I can take. Topamax was a Godsend for me for years, until my brain figured a way around it
Have you tired Amerge before? It comes in a generic form, naratriptan, which would cost less and it is just as effective (for me). I have been taking that one for a while too, NO side effects!! I can take it and still function, drive home from work...
It's worth checking out.
