A few days ago, I made a call to my neurologist’s office. The fourth call about the same issue. I needed my migraine medication and wasn’t able to get it. I was almost ready to give up and give in to having migraines on a daily basis. None of the usual preventative medications have worked for me, so I am on one of the new, hi-tech injectable medications for migraine prevention. It’s a once a month injection, and after two doses, I do see a decrease in the number of headaches I’m having each month. The first two doses were free, shipped to me by the pharmaceutical company as a trial, but the third dose and beyond need to be obtained from a commercial pharmacy. That means the pharmacy needs a prescription from my doctor, and the medication needs to be paid for, preferably by my health insurance policy, as it is quite expensive.
