Migraine Sufferers Could Be Looking At A BreakthroughVirtually everyone knows what a headache feels like, and more than a few have gone through a particularly bad episode, a terrible headache that turns loud noises and bright lights into the enemy and intrudes on your thoughts until there’s nothing else you can concentrate on. However, for some people, migraines aren’t just an occasional nuisance, they’re a regular occurrence that saps the life out of you for a few hours or else forces you to remain on edge for days or even weeks at a time.

Fortunately, those who suffer from regular migraines and have no easy way to get rid of them may soon have a solution that reduces these migraine episodes and in some cases ends them altogether. There’s an experimental new drug that’s going through early human trials right now, and its name (for the time being) is ALD403. The medication acts as a neurochemical suppressant, the neurochemical in question being responsible for many people’s migraines.

The drug also happens to be surprisingly long-lasting, and in its current form, patients only need to visit the doctor once every three months for an injection. In the trials already completed, most patients have seen a significant reduction in the frequency of their migraines, and a few have even stopped experiencing them altogether.

ALD403 may still be years away from FDA approval and pharmacy shelves, but it’s good to know that those who suffer from an age-old affliction like migraines may someday soon get to experience a degree of relief they hadn’t dared to dream of before.

Of course, like any new drug, ALD403 will be a brand-name drug exclusively for its first few years, making it a high-cost prospect even if you only need four doses per year. However, whether your health insurance pays most of this cost or not, you’re sure to get a discount if you show your druggist your USA Rx pharmacy discount card.
