Aimovig and abortive meds

Hi, I started Aimovig injections 3 months ago. I’m still getting many migraines and have noticed that my go to abortive medication, Maxalt, is no longer effective. Has anyone else who is taking Aimovig experiencing this with their triptans? (abortives)

    We are hearing a wide array of responses to this treatment, including ones in line with yours (that people are feeling that their abortives are no longer, or less effective). You are not alone in this, evidently- another example:https://migraine.com/reply/104815/

    Please stay in touch with us. Thinking of you and hoping you’ll be able to access the efficacy of your abortives asap!

    My triptans aren’t working either. I am beside myself. And just discovered through someone else posting a half life calculator that this stuff will be in the body for 195 days. Omg I don’t know what I’m going to do if my meds don’t work that long. I had so many side effects I don’t plan on taking a second shot.

    I’ve had similar experiences. My Aimovig dose is 140mg and my Zomig nasal spray stopped begin effective in August so my neurologist prescribed Rizatriptan. I tried the Rizatriptan for two weeks and abruptly stopped due to side effect issues.
