  • Step 2: Preparing for your first dose

    Aimovig is a once-monthly injection you take at home after getting instructions from your doctor.

    Some things to keep in mind after getting your prescription:

    refridgerator

    Store it in the fridge until you’re ready to take it. Before using it, remove Aimovig from the fridge and allow it to sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.

    sharps-container

    Have alcohol wipes and a sharps disposal container on hand to throw away the used autoinjector. Our Instructions for Use (IFU) suggest cleaning with alcohol wipes, but cleaning with soap and water may be an alternative. If you’re out of alcohol wipes, please consult your doctor.

    Aimovig comes in two doses: 70 mg/mL and 140 mg/mL. Both doses come in an easy-to-use autoinjector.

  • Step 3: What To Expect

    How effective is Aimovig?
    In clinical studies, Aimovig was proven to help prevent monthly migraine days. Some patients saw their number reduced by half or more. But remember, a reduction in migraine days doesn’t mean you won’t experience any at all.

    What will Aimovig feel like for you?
    Everyone’s body is different, and the exact response will vary from person to person. Your doctor will suggest a time to check in on your response.

    You can track every change, big or small, by responding to a daily text message with the free Daily Text Migraine Tracker. Tracking your migraine can allow you and your doctor to recognize changes and patterns and best assess your treatment plan. Sign up and get tracking!
