shared her post to the group: Botox for Migraine support/information.
I discussed this new class of drugs with my Neurologist a few weeks ago. They are promising, and I welcome them if they are safe. However, as they are a biologic, they will be quite expensive. Some estimates I have seen are upwards of $15,000 per injection. My insurance won't pay for Botox, so I'm not hopeful it will pay for these. Something to look forward to however.
That's contrary to what Dr Fayyaz Ahmed said. He is hopeful that the 7 drug companies will drive the price down by sheer competition.
He also quoted the price of the Triptans. Apparently they were quite expensive when they first came on licence. But as more companies developed more Triptans the price reduced. We have to hope Jan.
