Here’s what people like you are saying

You’ve tried coping with migraine or “waiting it out.” You’ve made lifestyle changes to try to manage it. You’ve even tried prescription medicine.

But research shows many people still aren't getting the relief they want from their migraine symptoms.

Now read the numbers

56%

of people
with migraine

said they still experienced pain 2 hours
after treatment.1,*

And the problem doesn't end there. If your treatment works poorly, you may find yourself using too much of certain acute treatments — those you take during a migraine attack. This can lead to a condition called medication-overuse headache, which can cause you to experience more and/or worse migraines.

In fact, studies have found that people whose migraine treatment works poorly have more than double the risk of developing chronic migraine, a condition where people have migraines on 15 or more days each month.

67%

of people
with migraine

said they delayed or avoided taking medicines because they were concerned about side effects.2,†

If you’ve tried prescription treatments for migraine, you’ve probably come to expect side effects. Maybe you hold off taking your migraine medicine. But waiting to treat your migraine may make it worse and harder to control.

If you avoid taking migraine medicine due to side effects, it’s time to talk to your doctor.

Migraine tends to strike just when life gets the busiest, usually between ages 25-55. And it’s no surprise that migraine symptoms can stop you from enjoying work, school, and social activities.

It’s time to demand more from treatment. So you can get back to work — and play — again.

Migraines can last a day or even longer. Your migraine treatment should provide relief without the need for a second dose within 24 hours.

There are new treatments available. Talk to your doctor.
