Migraine is more than a headache

It’s a real neurological disease 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.

14 or Fewer image
15 or More image

*With at least 8 of those being migraine days.

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

  • Preventive treatments are used proactively to help reduce the number of migraine days
  • Most acute medications are used reactively 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 migraine preventive treatment like once-monthly Emgality is right for you
