Brief Answer:
Rizatriptan can help you.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I am Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist and would try my best to help you.

For acute episodes of headache, rizatriptan tablets would help. Topamax (topiramate) can be continued for preventive therapy of migraine.

If you have any follow up queries, I would be pleased to answer.

Best wishes,

Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
