First drug to prevent chronic migraines approved by EU

woman-2696408_1920

As a chronic Migraine sufferer myself this is a great breakthrough.

The first ever drug specifically designed to prevent a migraine has been given the green light by European health officials. Erenumab is now expected to be considered by English and Scottish health agencies to assess whether it is appropriate for NHS use.

Chronic migraines affect more than 600,000 people across the UK. There is currently no cure for migraines, although a number of treatments are available to help ease the symptoms.

Novartis said that the drug is the first and only licensed treatment specifically designed to prevent migraine. It can be self-administered at home once a month with an auto-injector pen. The drug, administered via a jab, has been shown in trials to halve the average number of days patients suffer from a migraine in a month.
