Need Help With Elevating Specific Migraine Symptoms.

Can People Share Their Experiences Of Taking Aimovig?

Can People Share Their Experiences Of Taking Aimovig?

I’m having trouble getting my insurance to cover Emgality and my neuro says that Aimovig might be easier to get through for some reason. However, I’m rather concerned about the severe constipation side effect that has caused some patients to need surgery as that has been an issue I’ve had my whole life. How have you guys combatted that side effect? Any info you think would be useful would be much appreciated! TIA! 😊

Many of the treatments for migraine cause constipation. My neurologist prescribed magnesium for it. It's a big help!
