    I was on Emgality for 4 months and only had 5 days out of the month free of migraines.
    I am now on Amovig. this is my 2nd month and I was sick and on Antibiotics that caused severe migraines and Hemiplegic migraines every day for a month. I am hoping that it will begin to work, now that I am off of them. I guess I will just keep trying and hoping and praying.

    I had a visit with my doctor after month four of the CGRP Ajovy and am still symptomatic and experiencing only mild relief. She explained to me that the journal articles being done on CGRPs are showing efficacy continues to improve with therapy time frames of six months plus. I found this encouraging! We set a goal for my therapy at eight months before we fully evaluate how it worked.
