I’ve noticed that there so far haven’t been any discussions about the new anti-CGRP medication Emgality. Has anyone been prescribed this for vestibular migraine? Has it worked for vertigo and headaches? My doctor gave me a prescription along with a free sample of the first loading dose, but I haven’t injected it yet as I need to find out whether my insurance will cover the rest of the doses for the next year.
I’m a bit concerned about a possible allergic reaction, as people have reported injection-site reactions especially for Emgality. I also would like to know whether there is a possibility it would help my vertigo, as I have only really seen discussions of it helping with classic migraines. Admittedly, the actual headache part of my migraines are the worst for me currently, as I get about 4 bad migraines a week and almost constantly have a headache. But I would like to know if it’s possible that my vertigo will also improve.
