Episodic vs chronic migraine
“Episodic” and “chronic” are terms used to describe how many migraine days per month you experience.
*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
Ask your doctor if a migraine preventive treatment like once-monthly Emgality is right for you
