Migrains

The U.S. Drug and Food Administration have approved Amgen, a drug that will prevent migraines from occurring.

Migraines are more than just headaches. According to the Mayo Clinic, a migraine can cause severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, usually on just one side of the head. It's often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines can last up to 72 hours if untreated. They cause excruciating pain including:

Constipation
Mood changes, from depression to euphoria
Food cravings
Neck stiffness
Increased thirst and urination
Frequent yawning

“We feel pretty strongly this is a huge opportunity to help patients with a targeted, migraine specific medication that’s broadly efficacious, and can be administered in a patient-friendly way,” said Rob Lenz, VP, development at Amgen who lead the development of Aimovig.

“Aimovig provides patients with a novel option for reducing the number of days with migraine,” said Eric Bastings, M.D., deputy director of the Division of Neurology Products in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. “We need new treatments for this painful and often debilitating condition.”
