What is Migranal?
Migranal is a doctor prescribed medication used for the treatment of migraines that include aura or not. Aura is the confusing characteristic that sometimes comes with migraines in the form of unpleasant light, sound, or smell. Migranal provides fast and long-lasting relief to individuals that suffer these aggravating migraines. Although this drug is effective in treatment, it is only prescribed by a doctor and can’t be bought over the counter. If you have a prescription to Migranal or wish to ask your doctor about its use, The RX Helper may be able to help with prescription costs if you have little or no medication insurance coverage with our patient assistance programs.
What Does it Do?
Migranal can provide an individual relief from a migraine in as little to two hours. This means that the severity of a migraine went from extreme to minimal with little or no pain within the time period. Additional to being fast acting, Migranal is also a long-lasting treatment. A study of patients shows that over 85% saw relief lasting as long as 24 hours, with no other migraine activity within this time. Sensitivity to light and nausea symptoms that are often side effects of migraines are reduced within 2 to 4 hours of administered treatment.
How Does it Work?
Migranal’s active ingredient is dihydroergotamine or DHE for short. This ingredient can be administered through an iv serum in emergency situations at the hospital for those suffering severely with migraines. DHE directly targets the receptors in the brain related to the production of migraine headaches relieving immediate and long-lasting effects. The prescription form of Migranal is taken by a nasal spray for easy and immediate use.
