Product details

Aimovig is a once-monthly self-injection for the prevention of migraines. By taking Aimovig, you can reduce the number of migraine-free days each month, allowing you to reclaim your time with friends and family. Aimovig (which uses the medical name Erenumab) is a chemical that blocks calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) receptors. The monoclonal antibody has been developed in a lab from immune system cells to help support healing and injury prevention.

Your body has both CGRP and CGRP receptors. Doctors have found that CGRP attaches to a receptor and triggers migraine attacks. Aimovig works to block these receptors so the CGRP cannot attach to them. As a result, you may experience fewer migraines throughout the month.

In some patients, Aimovig cut the number of average migraine days in half each month. Across a three-month study, people who took Aimovig experienced six to seven fewer chronic migraine days each month compared to less than four fewer each month for the placebo group. Patients also noticed three to four fewer episodic migraines compared to less than two fewer for the placebo group.

Aimovig is recommended for patients who cannot reduce their number of monthly migraines through other drugs or who can’t take another medication because of drug interactions. Aimovig may not be right for everyone, but this is a promising step toward long-term migraine prevention instead of reaction-based treatment.
