Aimovig

Has anyone had any luck with Aimovig? I don't want to start taking it but my Dr wants me to try it. I'm on nortriptyline and I have sumatriptan pills and injections. I follow a migraine diet which did seem to help a lot for a while but not anymore. I'm so tired of battling this.


  1. YES! Many with migraine have had good results with this medication!! Let me share all our information on this medication; https://migraine.com/search?s=Aimovig. Have you tried any other medications for migraine prevention? Don't lose hope - there are over 100 medications, supplements, devices, complementary therapies and lifestyle modifications that can be used to treat migraine disease!

    1. I have been on Aimovig 3 years this month. It has made a huge difference for me. It has cut most of my symptoms in half - quantity, duration and intensity. I was not managing well at all, in fact I had no preventive medication 3 years ago and hadn't for a couple of years. My doctor let me know about Aimovig and I was hesitant myself. Your experience will vary from mine, but I did take it and it has made a difference. Statistically it helps about 50% of people get 50% relief. I hope you find something you are comfortable with. There are several options, including options that are pill versions - they work a bit differently but they (CGRPs and Gepants) both target CGRP. So if one doesn't work, then there are several more options of them to try.
