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! 😊

The mornings are the hardest and they seem to get better in the evenings. I have had full workups which have been negative. Zoloft x 7 years has not helped. Neither has Gabapentin, I have also had Botox with no relief. Tylenol and Asa has no helped.

I have had a liver transplant because of cancer ,,,,so I have to be careful what I ingest. I was looking up Remeron to… read more
