Galcanezumab treatment in people with migraine and comorbid anxiety and/or depression

Takeaway

  • Galcanezumab treatment reduced the frequency of migraine headache days (MHD) in people with a history of anxiety and/or depression with either episodic migraine (120 mg or 240 mg galcanezumab) or chronic migraine (240 mg galcanezumab).

Why this matters

    As anxiety and depression are common comorbidities in those with migraine, it is essential to characterize the efficacy of migraine medications in this population.
