New, Long-Acting Migraine Drugs are a New Hope for Migraine Sufferers

Now, the millions of people suffering from migraines may have a new hope from long-acting drugs. The two of these drugs, are being given as shots each month or so, come up as a discovery that they can reduce a frequency of notoriously disabling and painful headaches.

New drugs are known as first preventive medicines produced particularly for migraines. They play their role by interfering with the substance, which is involved in the modification of nerve signaling as well as progression of symptoms pain.

Dr. Andrew Hershey, a neurology chief of the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center says that it is a complete new direction for an important advance and treatment over the people who aren’t helped with the daily dosage of pills or don’t want to have them, which are the current options to be used sometimes now to the recurrences.

Dr. Hershey has not any role in the study, but he has performed experiment over other drugs and released a commentary that was published along with the studies by the New England Journal of Medicine on Wednesday.

Anne Vickers got the lower dose by one of leading researchers of the study at the Mercy Hospital St. Louis in Missouri. Anne said that, “I very definitely benefited. I can have anywhere from 15 to 18 headaches per month, and probably five of those days are migraines, but that dropped 40 percent on the drug. I have three kids, so for me it meant having more days when I was able to live my everyday life, cook a meal at home, go to events at school.”
