Ajovy: Have you tried it? Share your experience here.

  • By dollarslice

    Started with a three month dose twelve days ago. I’m cautiously optimistic… haven’t had a migraine yet. But it isn’t that unusual for me to go a couple weeks without one. I get around 8-10 days a month and they tend to come in clumps. I had seven days in a row with the last day being the day I started Ajovy, so I was due for a break.

    However, my brain feels absolutely the same. Still photophobic all the time, still feel “migrainey” sometimes and I have to avoid triggers, etc. When I first tried topamax it cured my photophobia and made me feel like I couldn’t get a migraine even if I stared at strobe lights all day. I don’t get that feeling with Ajovy, I just feel normal (for me). But I guess it’s still early since the drug doesn’t kick in right away.

    Anyway, hoping to hear from someone else on this drug. I feel like a guinea pig since I can’t find anyone online or offline who is on it!

    Hi: the real end for all kinds of migraine headaches was done in 1998 when I discoverd the migraine finger pressure points that can stop migraine headaches if we do it as must be done.
    You can see this video to learn how to do finger pressure for frontal migraine and for occipital migraine.
