I would recommend you discuss with your doctor prior to continuing Maxalt (rizatriptan) while you are pregnant as this medication has been listed by the US FDA to be a category C medication during pregnancy. It has not been proven to be safe to use during pregnancy.
There are a number of non-pharmacological home remedies you may consider such as; applying a cold towel to your head, cold showers, napping, exercising, relaxation techniques or a combination of these. You may also consider maintaining a diary of when and what might cause your headaches, By keeping a log of this information you can aim to avoid such headache 'triggers'. You should consult with your doctor to discuss some of these options and to determine the best treatment plan for migraines during your pregnancy.
