Is there a statute of limitations on a patent of a prototype?
Do patents expire. What if something was patented in 1905 and they gave up. But the patent is still in the database?

When does maxalt patent expire?
As I have researched this extensively, the patent that Merck holds on Maxalt expired on June 29, 2012. However, Merck has been granted a 153 day extension which would run to nearly the end of 2012. No word yet on any further extensions. Maxalt is very expensive and as a sufferer of cluster headaches, this is the only medication from some two dozen I have tried that works every time. I can only hope the patent is allowed to expire so that generic brands at lower costs will be made available.
