What is Suviray® Erenumab Injection?
A migraine is usually a moderate or severe headache felt as a throbbing pain on 1 side of the head. Many people also have symptoms such as feeling sick, being sick, and increased sensitivity to light or sound. Migraine is a common health condition, affecting around 1 in every 5 women and around 1 in every 15 men.
Erenumab (brand name Aimovig) is a medication used for the preventative treatment of migraines in adults. It is a type of medication known as a calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) receptor antagonist. CGRP is a protein that is involved in the transmission of pain signals in the brain, and blocking its activity can help reduce the frequency and severity of migraines.
Erenumab is administered as a subcutaneous injection once a month, and it works by binding to the CGRP receptor and preventing CGRP from activating it. It was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2018 and has since been approved in many other countries for the treatment of migraines.
As with all medications, Erenumab can have side effects, which can include injection site reactions, constipation, and muscle spasms. It is important to discuss the potential benefits and risks of Erenumab with your healthcare provider to determine if it is the right treatment option for you.
