The burden of migraine headache
What is a migraine?
When a migraine strikes, it’s not only painful, it impacts all aspects of your life, ranging from your homelife to your ability to work or attend school. Migraines can strike several times a month and can last up to 72 hours if untreated. Other symptoms associated with migraine can include:
Aura (flashes of light/disrupted vision)
Nausea and vomiting
Sensitivity to light, sound, smell, and touch
Interested in new treatments? You're not alone.
In a survey of 3,923 individuals suffering from migraine, 60% of patients were dissatisfied with their current treatments.1
While some patients find their current treatment regimen to be effective, it can raise concerns for others:
• Unwanted side effects
• Overuse of medication
• Inconsistent relief
• Drug aversion
