Manage Patients Admitted on Rimegepant for Migraine Prophylaxis
You may see rimegepant (Nurtec ODT) on med lists for migraine PREVENTION in adults.
It blocks receptors of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), a vasodilator and pain sensitizer that spikes during migraine attacks.
Until recently, rimegepant was only approved for acute treatment. And only the INJECTABLE CGRP antagonists, such as erenumab (Aimovig), were approved for prevention.
