New CGRP approved on NHS

Eptinezumab (also called Vyepti) is now available on NHS for those in the UK. It differs from other CGRP drugs in that its an IV infusion which is administered in a medical care setting, not as an at home injection. Its meant to last 3 months. As with the others it can only be prescribed by a specialist when at least 3 migraine preventatives have been trialled.

Do these work for VM does anyone know?

CGRP drugs seem less effective for vestibular migraine according to Dr. Hain at Northwestern Uni in Chicago, USA. I’ve tried a few CGRPs that didn’t work for me too, but anything is always worth a shot

Do they always need to be injected or is there another way of administering them?

There are now 4 drugs (erenumab etc.) NICE approved for migraine. Do they work for migraine with vertigo? Does anyone have any experience of them?

Have you taken a look through existing Posts in #medication:cgrp-antagonists ?

there are both oral and injectable forms. I have tried Nurtec and Ubrevly which are both oral forms, but none of the injectables
