Patients with chronic migraines have often tried other medications and treatment options before their physician recommends Vyepti®. Clinical studies of patients using Vyepti® have shown it to be effective after just one treatment in lessening the number of migraines patients experience.
Conditions treated by Vyepti®
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Vyepti® to help prevent episodic and chronic migraines. It’s important to note that Vyepti® does not treat active migraine symptoms — it helps prevent them from happening in the first place. Chronic migraines can often be managed with medication and trigger prevention.
Migraines are severe headaches accompanied by varying symptoms of throbbing pain, nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and noise, and more. A protein in the body called calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is believed to play a part in the cause of migraine episodes. Vyepti® works to block CGRP, thus preventing migraines from occurring in the future.
What to expect with Vyepti® infusion therapy
As with any medication, side effects or allergic reactions are always possible. Before your first injection, the FlexCare team will educate you about Vyepti® and what to expect following your infusion. Because the medication is administered directly into the bloodstream, it starts working as soon as the patient receives their first dose.
At FlexCare Infusion Centers, our priorities are always patient comfort, communication, and convenience. After your physician refers you to our stand-alone infusion center, we communicate with you both throughout every step of your treatment plan. We are also pleased to offer convenient evening and weekend appointment hours, plus comfortable infusion suites that include heated massage chairs, streaming audio and video, and other amenities to make your infusion experience as comfortable as possible.
