I had a headache from 4 pm - 5 am. I didn't take anything. I took Excedrin around 4 am but it didn't help. Then I took Maxalt (rizatriptan) MLT around 5 am and it helped. Can you take Excedrin and Maxalt (rizatriptan) for migraine?

In brief: Possible migraine

Migraine like headache can be caused by a bone spur in the nose.
A ct scan of the sinuses is indicated and if the spur is present a septoplasty to remove it is indicated. I provide relief to almost 90% of patients with this problem. Visit my website for more information at www. Kevinsmithmd.Com.

Yes you can take them together. One drug on the market, treximet, is very similar to that combination.
