NEW MEDICATIONS FOR CHRONIC MIGRAINES!!
Three new medications are now available for treatment of Chronic Migraine in patients who have an average of 4 or more headaches per month and have failed traditional oral prophylactic medications. Emgality, Aimovig, and Ajovy are anti-CRP (calcitonin gene-related peptide) therapies which work against the immune cause of Migraine with monthly or quarterly single dose therapies and minimal potential adverse side effects. Studies have indicated up to a 50% reduction in headache. Onset of action is rapid. Consider these therapies in patients with Chronic Migraine/Chronic Daily headache in 18 years of age or older.
