A new miracle drug promises to prevent migraines before they even start.
For the unlucky 37 million Americans who suffer from migraines, the debilitating pain that comes with each episode can be like a recurring nightmare. For many of these sufferers, it’s terribly difficult to describe what a migraine really feels like. But some have tried:
“The pain feels like a coat hanger is being shoved up inside my head, like my head could explode from heat and pain. Sometimes it would hurt so badly I’d just be curled up in the fetal position in bed.”
The FDA just approved a new drug that not only reduces the pain, but prevents migraines
The new drug, called Aimovig, is manufactured by Amgen and Novartis. It will cost the patient $6,900 per year and will be administered with a pen similar to an insulin pen.
Many physicians believe this drug will have a huge impact very quickly. “This is really an amazing time for my patient population and for general neurologists treating patients with migraine,” said Dr. Amaal Starling, a neurologist and migraine specialist at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix.
Natural alternatives for migraine relief
In a study of 127 subjects who suffered from chronic migraines and cluster headaches, a compound relieved the migraine pain by 43%. What was the medication administered? A tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) compound was more effective than other medications on the market at the time.
