My wife and I are back to the island, and wouldn't be asking this if my wife weren't in true need of some help. She has monthly migraines and uses Maxalt 10mg. However, she wasn't expecting to have migraines while here this trip, and only brought a couple tablets with her.

Does any use, or know how to get, more Maxalt since she has used up her small supply? We've already checked a few pharmacies, including the one around the corner from Elvie's. They only carry caffeine containing tablets which have never worked. We tried a couple today as well, and they still aren't working.

If anyone knows how to get more on the island, or is headed to the mainland and knows somewhere there, my wife brought her prescription and it would really help us out so she can enjoy our remaining 8 days here.

Thanks for any help.

The 1st line therapy treatment for my migraines is also Maxalt 10 mg. I have recently found them at Tourist Village (February 2011). Other than that, not sure......

I don't know about migraine medications, but I am a massage therapist and have had great success in treating migraines with massage therapy techniques. If you are further interested send me a message. I hope she feels better soon!

There is a drug called Avimigran, (or Avamigran) sold locally at most pharmacies. Not sure if these contain caffeine, but they seem to do the trick for those that use them.

Thanks to all for your suggestions and help. We were able to get some through the local pharmacy yesterday, flown in from Belize City. If anyone needs this or any medication, it seems the Unique Pharmacy on Buccaneer next to Lino's Meat Shop can get just about anything you need. $8 bz to fly it over same/ next day in a pinch.
