Background

Migraine is a worldwide debilitating disease. About 11.7% of people in the United States experience migraines. Migraine attacks are often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound. Unfortunately, only 12.4% of people with migraines receive preventative therapy due to current options not being effective. 

This study aims to determine the effectiveness of a potential migraine treatment (Erenumab) in preventing high-frequency Migraine episodes in people who have not experienced relief through the current preventive migraine medications. Erenumab has been approved in approximately 40 countries.

This study is inviting adults aged 18 years old or older who are experiencing episodic migraines. A person with episodic migraines experiences about less than 15 headache days per month. Interested participants must be willing to comply with all the necessary study requirements.
