    • Does Aimovig suppress the immune system or increase risk of infection?

      Aimovig is biologic medicine that works by targeting and blocking the calcitonin gene-related peptide receptor (CGRP-R) that has been scientifically linked to migraine. In clinical trials, there has been no evidence that Aimovig suppresses the immune system.

      There are no data to inform on the clinical course of COVID-19 in patients receiving Aimovig. However, your doctor is in the best position to determine whether you should stop taking Aimovig based on your individual medical situation. If your doctor tells you to stop taking Aimovig, they are in the best position to discuss if it is appropriate to re-start Aimovig and how long to wait before re-starting Aimovig.

    • Where should I go to find general information about COVID-19?

      Please see COVID-19 guidance from the World Health Organization or the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. You can also find COVID-19 information from Amgen and Novartis on each company website.

  • Getting Aimovig
    • Can I get a 90-day supply (or more) of Aimovig?

      Ask your doctor to write you a prescription for 3 months for long-term medications. Or, ask your pharmacy if a 90-day fill is available. Some plans are allowing longer fills. Of course, a 90-day supply must be approved by your insurance plan and may be available during this time as an exception.

    • Can I receive my Aimovig without going to the pharmacy?

      Many pharmacies are now offering mail order, some even do it free of charge. Please call your pharmacy to see what options are available to you. You can also check your insurer’s website or call the Members Services phone line to identify what mail order pharmacy is contracted with your insurance plan.

    • Will my copay card cover a 90-day supply of Aimovig/does my insurance cover a 90-day supply?

      Your copay card will cover a 90-day supply. Individual insurance plans and coverage can vary. Talk to your insurance provider for specific information about your prescription coverage. Note, new prescriptions may be required for a 90-day fill. Ask your pharmacist for more information.

  • Taking Aimovig
    • What can I do if alcohol wipes are unavailable that are required for injection?

      During the COVID-19 pandemic, cleaning with soap and water may be an alternative. Our 70 mg/mL Instructions for Use or the 140 mg/mL Instructions for Use provide guidance that alcohol wipes are preferred. However, if you are out of alcohol wipes, please consult with your healthcare provider.
