Aimovig–New Migraine-Prevention-Drug Myth


Aimovig™: A Miracle Migraine Treatment or Unnecessary Risk?

article was just released. I wrote this article after a long research period of this new drug that received FDA approval just recently and some migraineurs are already on it.
The research quite strongly shows that the drug doesn’t work as intended–only a couple of migraine-free days are gained per month. I have migraineurs who are on Aimovig who joined my migraine group because it doesn’t work.

Big pharma has already attacked some of my pages–this is a further proof: it is all about the money!

Be aware! Help those with migraines see that this drug is not any more magic bullet than any others in the past. it can also cause permanent damage–all listed in my article I linked to above so please read and share that article!

Thanks for your help in helping migraine sufferers around the world!


So many migraine sufferers who started takign Aimovig continue to have migraines! They are continuing their other medications as well. This has to be one of the most dangerous situations for migraineurs.

Aimovig’s half-life is 28 days! That means that if one gets a horrible adverse effect, it stays for over a month! The adverse reactions are not listed on the FDA label! But they are listed on the supplementary table at the research paper’s website.

Adverse Reactions

Here they are from the research paper: cold, upper respiratory tract infection, ankle fracture, viral gastroenteritis, sepsis, colitis, vestibular neuronitis, back pain, migraine, ovarian cyst, and sinusitis. One person also experienced cerebral venous thrombosis. Over 6% of the people taking it ended up creating antibodies against it (meaning they had an immune response that can either cause an allergic reaction or lead to autoimmune diseases) and some people quit the clinical trial because of adverse effects. None of this is written on the label! Attached is an appendix of their research–see table S3 for adverse effects.

Thanks for your help in helping migraine sufferers around the world!

About Angela A Stanton, Ph.D.

Angela A Stanton, PhD, is a Neuroeconomist focusing on chronic pain--migraine in particular--physiology, electrolyte homeostasis, nutrition, and genetics. She lives in Southern California. Her current research is focused on migraine cause, prevention, and treatment without the use of medicine. As a forever migraineur from childhood, her discovery was helped by experimenting on herself. She found the cause of migraine to be at the ionic level, associated with disruption of the electrolyte homeostasis, resulting from genetic variations of all voltage dependent channels, gates, and pumps (chanelopathy) that modulate electrolyte mineral density and voltage in the brain. In addition, insulin and glucose transporters, and several other variants, such as MTHFR variants of B vitamin methylation process and many others are different in the case of a migraineur from the general population. Migraineurs are glucose sensitive (carbohydrate intolerant) and should avoid eating carbs as much as possible. She is working on her hypothesis that migraine is a metabolic disease. As a result of the success of the first edition of her book and her helping over 5000 migraineurs successfully prevent their migraines world wide, all ages and both genders, and all types of migraines, she published the 2nd (extended) edition of her migraine book "Fighting The Migraine Epidemic: Complete Guide: How To Treat & Prevent Migraines Without Medications". The 2nd edition is the “holy grail” of migraine cause, development, and prevention, incorporating all there is to know. It includes a long section for medical and research professionals. The book is full of academic citations (over 800) to authenticate the statements she makes to make it easy to follow up by those interested and to spark further research interest. It is a "Complete Guide", published on September 29, 2017. Dr. Stanton received her BSc at UCLA in Mathematics, MBA at UCR, MS in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, PhD in Economics with dissertation in neuroscience (culminating in Neuroeconomics) at Claremont Graduate University, fMRI certification at Harvard University Medical School at the Martinos Center for Neuroimaging for experimenting with neurotransmitters on human volunteers, certification in LCHF/ketogenic diet from NN (Nutrition Network), certification in physiology (UPEN via Coursea), Nutrition (Harvard Shool of Public Health) and functional medicine studies. Dr. Stanton is an avid sports fan, currently power weight lifting and kickboxing. For relaxation (yeah.. about a half minute each day), she paints and photographs and loves to spend time with her family of husband of 45 years, 2 sons and their wives, and 2 granddaughters.

    Every time I tell people about the benefits of salt, including doctors and other so called health providers, they look at me in disbelief, and sometimes even with anger. “How can you be so stupid, Roald”, is a common phrase leaving their mouth, followed by, “Too much salt is bad for you, Roald”. Of course I agree with them on “too much”, which eases a bit the mental pain and confusion I’ve caused them, and also gives them the uplifting feeling they’ve corrected my abominable take on salt. Well……um……till I tell them: “If you drink too much water, you could die.” 😈

    Ah, already Petronius noticed: Mundus vult decipi, ergo decipiatur.

    Note: Posted this to Hormones Matters too 😉

    • Hahahahah.. I just about fell off the chair on your comment “If you drink too much water, you could die.” lol And it is so true!! Many people HAVE died from water poisoning. Not sure what makes people lose their common sense (or maybe some had none to start with?)…

      heh, thanks Roald for the laugh. 🙂


I would love to see your thoughts!
