I have atypical migraines (no auras, no light sensitivity, no nausea), which I get everyday. My first dose of Aimovig was a single dose. There seemed to a slight effect of a few migraine-free days over the month. My doctor doubled the dose. The second month with a double dose, I had about 10 days with no migraines. The third month, I had about 20 days with no migraines. Then, this past month (the fourth month), I had no migraine-free days. That was a huge disappointment. I was expecting even better results. I just did my fifth dose yesterday and am waiting to see what happens. I always had migraines the day of the injections and yesterday was no different. So far, today seems okay, but the day is still young.
I've heard from different people that Aimovig starts having immediate effects all the way up to that it may take 6 months before one sees effects. Are there any data on the effects of Aimovig?
