Migraines are common and affect about 15% of the adult population. To date, the common treatment for migraines (Triptans) has shown to be not as effective. People have reported inconsistent pain relief and migraine recurrence. In addition, individuals with heart problems on top of migraines cannot take Triptans because it causes narrowing of the blood vessels which might trigger heart issues.
Researchers are investigating the effectiveness of a new potential option for the acute treatment of migraine attacks. The investigational medication is to be administered through a nasal spray. This new approach also aims to avoid triggering heart problem issues.
The study is seeking adults 18 years old and older. Interested participants must be suffering from moderate to severe migraines.
- You may be able to try a new potential option that may improve migraine symptoms.
- You may experience potential pain relief from migraines.
- You will receive up to $50 for every study visit completion and additional up to $25 if diary compliance criteria is met on a monthly basis.
- You may help others suffering from migraines through contributing valuable information.
- You will be helping to advance medical research.
- If you decide to participate in the study and later feel that you no longer wish to be part of it, you may withdraw at any time.
- Your records relating to this study and any other information received will be kept strictly confidential, except as required by law.
- Qualified health professionals will monitor your health as it relates to the study.
