CGRPs (calcitonin-gene-related peptide)

Injection location differences?

  • By CatholicCarry

    I used Aimovig for about a year, alternating thighs for injections. My new Neuro has better luck with Emgality & switched me. She recommended injecting in the abdominal fat, but due to autologous breast reconstruction I don’t have any fat there. The first time I opted for the buttocks, but she thinks that area is too muscular. The 2nd time I did in my thigh again. She wants me to try the Emgality one more time in my other thigh.

    Has anyone else noticed a difference in effectiveness related to injection location?

    Hi CatholicCarry,

    This is a great question, thank you for reaching out to us. I don’t have any direct information on this as I’m not taking any CGRP medications. I did however, find this information on the Emgality site that may be useful;

    Hopefully others will be along shortly to share their experiences with you.

    Will you keep me posted on how you are doing?
