Migraine is a primary headache disorder and causes substantial pain and disability. Migraine sufferers could suffer from episodic migraine or chronic migraine. While both of these adversely affect the quality of life, the management of chronic migraine patients poses many challenges, as it mainly relies on preventive treatment. Till now, we have very limited options for preventive management of chronic migraine; recently, new drug erenumab has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. It has shown very promising results in the management of chronic migraine as it acts by novel mechanism as calcitonin gene-related peptide receptor blocker.
