Ajovy is a once-monthly self-injection that is used to treat migraines with or without aura (a warning sign, such as flashing lights, wavy lines, or spots). By taking Ajovy, you can reduce the number of migraine-free days each month, allowing you to reclaim your time with friends and family. Ajovy (which contains the active ingredient Erenumab) blocks calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) receptors.
Your body has both CGRP and CGRP receptors. Doctors have found that CGRP attaches to a receptor and triggers migraine attacks. Ajovy works to block these receptors so the CGRP cannot attach to them. As a result, you may experience fewer migraines throughout the month.
We also charge a $60 medication consultation, which includes unlimited access to our medical team for a full year.
How Does Ajovy Work?
Ajovy (Erenumab) is a once-monthly self-administered injection given for migraine prevention. The medicine works by blocking pain signals from reaching your brain, effectively preventing migraines from developing.
How Can You Get Ajovy?
Unlike many migraine medications, ajovy is prescription-only. If you think you might benefit from using it to treat your migraines, talk to your doctor about potentially getting a prescription and then working with your local pharmacy or medical supply store to get it filled.
What Precautions Should I Take With Ajovy?
Before you start taking ajovy, be sure to discuss it with your doctor. They may instruct you to begin with a lower dose than recommended on your prescription. If so, follow these instructions carefully and contact your doctor if you experience any side effects. It’s also important to remember that overuse of migraine medication can actually cause headaches and trigger rebound headaches, which means that they occur more frequently and severely than before treatment.
What Are Some Side Effects of Ajovy?
Some of its possible side effects include drowsiness, dizziness, dry mouth, headache and upset stomach. You should also avoid getting behind the wheel or operating heavy machinery after taking ajovy because it could make you drowsy. Remember that people may react differently to different medications; if your symptoms worsen or if you notice any side effects not listed above, be sure to talk to your doctor.
Important Information When Taking Ajovy
Before taking any new medication, you should speak with your doctor. It’s especially important to alert your physician if you have allergies, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have preexisting health conditions like heart disease. Those with bleeding disorders like hemophilia should also be sure to discuss their condition with a medical professional before taking any new medications. You should also take precautions to avoid dehydration when using ajovy; common side effects include dizziness and lightheadedness.
