Aimovig® CGRP Migraine Headache Medication
At Keller, Bedford and the Fort Worth Texas area at the Kane Hall Barry Headache Clinic
Kane Hall Barry Neurology offers CGRP therapy at our Keller and Bedford Headache Clinics.
Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is one of the chemicals – called neurotransmitters – that help transmit signals throughout your body. CGRP around the nerves in your head may play a key role in migraine pain.
Aimovig®, Ajovy®, and Emgality® each deal with CGRP in various ways and may significantly reduce the number of monthly migraines. Aimovig® selectively targets and blocks the CGRP receptor. Ajovy® selectively targets the CGRP ligand, and Emagality® binds to CGRP and blocks it from binding to the receptor. Talk to your doctor about which option is best for you.
AIMOVIG®, AJOVY®, and EMGALITY® are prescription medicines used for the preventive treatment of migraine in adults (over 18). You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit MedWatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088. For more information refer to the Medication Guide or talk with your doctor.
