I got approved for Aimovig and Ubrevly through Medicare, but who can afford them?!! Aimovig was $450 per shot and Ubrevly was $925 per month...even using Good Rx coupon to help out. I signed up for assistance on Aimovig through the Amgen Safetynet Foundation and was accepted for free shots for a year. There's apparently another assistance program for Ubrevly, but I haven't turned in my paperwork yet.

Due to having high blood pressure my Neurologist won't try to put me on those. I am on gabapenton for nerve damage and a generic muscle relaxer. Fioricet is the only thing I can take
