CGRPs (calcitonin-gene-related peptide)

Aimovig Update

  • By thatcher1994

    I have had a monthly 70 mL dose since May, and am due for my 8th injection next week. Other than a little constipation the first month, I’ve had no side effects. My migraines went from 20+ per month to 2 or 3….until last month. Then, they just disappeared.

    I had figured the effectiveness would have maxed out by the sixth month, but it appears there was another gear. It’s incredible.

    After dealing with the initial delays in the Ally program, an insurance denial, a successful appeal, and then a change of insurance where I’m still trying to get it covered, the $0 copay card is still working.

    I hadn’t really seen many follow ups from those who started in May and got relief, so I thought I’d share my experience. I hope everyone is well and finding relief.
