Migraine is more than a headache

It’s a real neurological condition that affects millions

Migraine is a complex disorder that can cause debilitating headaches accompanied by a variety of symptoms. Some people with migraine experience symptoms like:

  • Head pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Sensitivity to light and/or sound
  • Visual effects and/or aura

Episodic vs chronic migraine

“Episodic” and “chronic” are terms used to describe how many migraine days per month you experience.

There’s a difference between reacting to migraine and proactively treating it

  • Preventives are proactive treatments that are used to help reduce the number of migraine days
  • Most acute* medications are reactive treatments that are used to reduce the severity of or eliminate the migraine attack

*Emgality is not approved for the acute treatment of migraine

Ask your doctor if a preventive like once-monthly Emgality is right for you
