I have never suffered from a migraine. I know many patients that do suffer. I utilize a different treatment. I first try to find out the trigger whether food or different allergen
I then utilize some herbs as Jamaican Dogwood, Butterbur and even Feverfew.
Ask your doctor about this new injection. Also be aware that the cost is $575 per month
