Back to all discussions

My student doctor had me try each of the 3 CGRP meds for 3 months.

I did not have any side effects but minimal results. I have read many people tried them for much longer and many did 2 shots and not one. I've had migraines for over 20 years and now they are chronic, I am now with another doctor. Should I ask to try them for a longer basis?

  1. Hello, JaniceADP, thank you for reaching out! I hear how much you struggle living with chronic migraine symptoms. We cannot provide medical advice or treatment recommendations over the internet (for your safety!) but I would encourage you to have a frank conversation with your new provider. Take time to explain your experience with CGRP - length of time you tried, dosage, response, etc. and see what s/he recommends! It never hurts to have a discussion about options. Please keep us posted on how your doctor advises you and how you are managing. Wishing you a gentle day. ~Allyson (Migraine.com team)
