      I've been taking aimovig injections for half a year. It gives me pretty bad constipation but other than that it's okay. I still have nearly daily headaches but it helps a bit with severity and a lot with my nausea

      The thing about this is if you have side effects you cannot just stop it like a pill. Its in your body for 30 to 45 days or whatever they say.. I wish you the best and hope you don't have any side effects. What's the meds?

        @nsiberian sorry for the wildly late reply. It's Amovig

          @spicysugar that one was not for me, it rocked my gut. Idk why, my stomach is pretty messed up anyway.. but I won't do any inj meds again. But some ppl love it and say it works very well for them

      it's a subcutaneous injection, so like the tetanus shot being so small is a sub-q. It just means it's right under the skin and not into the muscle

      Have you looked up the side effects so you know what to look out for?

        @ClumsyWorm I did before but I'll go look it up again
