Amerge Uses

Amerge Is Used to Treat a Migraine Attack

Amerge is used to treat migraine attacks in adults under the age of 65.

A migraine is typically described as a headache disorder that causes symptoms beyond what might be considered normal, including throbbing, nausea, and sensitivity to light, sound, and/or odors. Amerge is only used once a headache has started.

It does not work for migraine prevention or controlling how often migraines occur. In addition to relieving head pain, Amerge may help reduce other migraine symptoms such as nausea and sensitivity to light and/or sound.

Amerge is not intended to prevent a migraine headache or to treat hemiplegic migraine (a headache with stroke-like symptoms of extreme muscular weakness or paralysis) or basilar migraine (migraine with throbbing pain at the back of the head).
