FOX4: New FDA Approved medication could provide relief for migraine sufferers

May 30, 2018

Do you suffer from painful migraines? There may be some new relief available locally. The FDA has approved a new injection to help the nearly 20 percent of people who suffer from migraines.

“The main advantage is that it is a different medication," said Steven Arkin, a neurologist at Saint Luke’s Marion Bloch Neuroscience Institute. "It is a totally different mechanism. So when I have been talking over the last couple decades, I’ve had just a short collection to choose from. Once that list is exhausted, I really do not have elsewhere to go except to choose different combinations."
