5. i believe these are essentially the same medication

aimovig and emgality are both monthly with an self-injecting pen.

ajovy is monthly or quarterly injection with a prefilled syringe.

in practice, i think pricing would be the main consideration, which in turn depends on what insurance you have; or if you can get some assistance cards which manufacturers are offering for a while.

i started aimovig as soon as my insurance would approve it. so far so good, really no side effects, and i've had fewer migraines,

it helps, but doesn't eliminate the problem. i've had terrible luck with migraine prophylaxis medications, so for me even a small beneficial effect is huge.
