Anyone know about “Aimovig – CGRP monoclonal antibodies”?

QUESTION: Does anyone know about “CGRP monoclonal antibodies” and the new FDA approve med “Aimovig”? My Headache specialist thinks I should start taking it, free trial available. Considering I’ve had terrible Cluster Headaches now for 15 years with no real preventative relief, this new med sounds quite interesting. I’ve got the preventatives down pat but this is supposed to have good preventative potential. HELP any Advice or experience to share? My Headache Specialist thinks it will be covered, the first 3 months are given for free and then only a $10 co-pay for the next 9 months from what she told me. Doctors have applications/paperwork that needs to be completed and signed by them certifying you have migraines or Cluster Headaches. So talk to your headache specialist, I’m sure they will help you.
