Target migraine attacks differently
REYVOW is the first and only medicine of its kind.
When you get a migraine attack, the nerves in your brain get overexcited and trigger pain signals.
REYVOW is believed to fight your migraine by targeting and activating 5-HT1F receptors. These receptors are found inside and outside of the brain.
Although it's unknown exactly how REYVOW works, it's believed that when the 5-HT1F receptors are activated, they block pain signals. The exact role 5-HT1F receptors play in migraine is unclear.
