For all  you chronic migraine sufferers out there there is a new medication called Aimovig it’s finally just come out on the market.  It looks just like a Epi pen.

My neurologist told me about it a year and a half ago and it finally got approved by the FDA and got released last month. I just signed the paperwork at my doctors office this week, my doctor showed me what it looked  like and how to use it it’s very simple and easy. It costs $575 a month without insurance but it is supposed to reduce migraines by 50% and some people got 75% relief. It has had a lot of success. 

 Unfortunately my insurance doesn’t cover it so I have to pay out-of-pocket, but for me it’s worth its worth it  and worth the investment when I’m getting 3 to 4 migraines a day sometimes more often, Losing my vision and  going practically blind and getting very nauseated, getting very confused and dizzy and because of all this I can’t work or barely leave the house, have a social life or drive.  

 My hope with this medication is that I will be able to regain some of my life back and hopefully be able to work and drive again.  But because the medication is so expensive and because I cannot work I need donations to be able to afford this medication. 

My doctor said they will be coming out with a pill form soon,  hopefully that option will be cheaper and my insurance will cover it but in the meantime any donations would be greatly appreciated, my go fund me page link is listed below. 

 

Any questions please let me know😃
