    Iâ??m a 40 year old woman and have had migraines since I was 19. I use Maxalt (rizatriptan) as a rescue drug, which works, but it doesnâ??t prevent me from getting multiple per week. Migraines had essentially controlled the majority of my life. Iâ??ve just recently started Aimovig and have had ZERO migraines since my first injection almost a month ago.

    I am a 23 year old male who was having 15+ migraines a month for several years. After trying nearly every preventative available I tried Aimovig and it has changed my life. I now get maybe 1 migraine a month and I have no side effects. I can not recommend this product more.

    Comment: I am a 55 year old man with chronic migraine. I injected 140mg having read that the only side effects were constipation and injection site soreness. The side effects started 24 hours later and didnt' include the ones stated, chronic insomnia, racing heart, hot and cold flushes, feeling sick and spaced out and terrible headaches. I don't know why anyone would take this drug.
