Hi Melissa,

I’m so sorry to hear you’ve had such a difficult time. I hear you about trading in pain free days for feeling better.

Try not to lose hope, the other CGRP medications work a bit differently and may not have the same impact Aimovig did. Dr. Dodick explains that here; https://migraine.com/living-migraine/cgrp-work-key-lock/.
