What is Vydura and how does it work?

Vydura is a breakthrough migraine medication, that can effectively treat and relieve migraines in adults. The active ingredient is rimegepant which belongs to a new class of migraine medications called "Gepants". Vydura works by inhibiting the activity of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP). CGRP is released by nerves and makes a migraine last longer. The active ingredient in Vydura, rimegepant, blocks the release of CGRP by attaching itself to the receptor for CGRP. This in turn helps to end migraines.

Triptans such as Sumatriptan & Rizatriptan lead to a tightening of blood vessels unlike Vydura. This means that the patient is less likely to experience side effects and the medication is suitable for people who have cardiovascular related co-morbidities. 

To learn more about migraines, look at our guide that answers the question ‘what is a migraine?’.

How effective is Vydura?

In clinical trials, it was shown to be highly effective when used for migraine relief:

  • In the first 24 hours, 86% of patients did not require any other interventions.
  • Between 2 and 48 hours, rimegepant provided 42% of patients with continued pain relief after the first dose.
  • 21% of patients were pain free within 2 hours.

FAQs

What is A Migraine?

Migraines generally start as a dull ache and then develop into a throbbing and pulsating constant pain that you will likely feel at the temples as well as the front or back of both sides of your head. The pain usually comes with bouts of nausea, vomiting and hypersensitivity to light and sound. Prior to a migraine attack, some people will experience something called an aura (about 25% of people who suffer from migraines).

What Causes Migraines?

The cause of mingraines is stilll somewhat ambiguous however it is believed to be caused by a chemical reaction in the brain which leads to constriction of certain vessels, triggering the headache. There is thought to be both environmental and genetic factors which influence who gets migraine as well as susceptibility to migraine attacks.

How Do I Treat Migraines?

Migraines can be treated using a variety of techniques, however unfortunately, there is no cure for migraines. The most common way to deal with migraines is to use a particular class of medcations known as triptans. Triptans are used to treat the acute migraine symptoms. However there are some prophylactic/preventative treatments that can be take for the treatment of migraine such as propranolo and topiramate.

What is A Migraine Aura?

Around 20-25% of people who suffer from Migraine will likely have an aura prior to the migraine itself. An aura can be described as varying intensities of certain neurological symptoms that act as a 'warning sign' to tell you that you are about to have a migraine. An aura can manifest as you seeing wavy or jagged lines, dots or flashing lights- this often described as a chemical or electrical wave that moves accross the visual cortex. Auras can also lead to you having tunnel vision or blind spots in one or both eyes. There are other symptoms associated with a migraine aura such as auditory/visual hallucinations, changes in small (phantom smells), numbness, pins and needles or speech disturbances. 

Can The Weather Affect Migraines?

For some people, weather changes can cause an imbalance in neurotransmitters and chmicals in the brain such a sereotning (5-HT), which can lead to more frequent migraines. Bright sunshine as well as hot and humid conditions may lead to your migraines being triggered. Some studies have shown that low barometric pressure can act as a trigger for migraines for some people.

What is A Migraine Trigger?

Migraine triggers vary person to person; something that affects one person may not affect the other. Surveys, diary studies and clinical trials have inidicated that stress, menstrual cycle changes, weather changes, sleep disturbances, alcohol, and other foods are among the most common factors mentioned when it comes to triggering a migraine. To help prevent migraines it is important to keep a diary of when you have a migraine attack. This allows for you to pin-point what may be causing your migraine and therefore drastically reducing your chance of getting a migraine.

Am I More Likely to Get A Stroke if I Suffer From Migraine?

Migraines are generally considered a relatively benign neurological condition. However, research has shown an association between migraines and stroke, and especially between migraine with aura and ischaemic stroke. Patients can also suffer from migrainous infarction (blood clot), a subset of ischaemic stroke that often occurs in the posterior circulation of younger women. The exact origina of migrainous associated infarction is not known, but it is theorised that the duration and local neuronal energy level from cortical spreading depression may be a prime factor.

Is There A Link Between Hormonal Changes and Migraine?

Horomones are proteins that are responsible for the regulation and overall biochemical function of our body to allow for complete balance and homeostasis as your environment changes. If you have a hormonal imbalance in your body during menopause, pregnancy or mestruation it can lead to a migraine attack

What Medications Can Be Used to Treat The Acute Symptoms of Migraine?

Acute medications are used to treat the pain of the headache after the migraine has started. Examples of acute migraine medications are some NSAIDS (ibuprofen/diclofenac/naproxen), ergots (ergotamine) and triptans (sumatriptan/rizrtriptan/zolmitriptan)
