Do you ever put off or avoid taking your migraine treatments?
Do any treatments ever disrupt your day or week?
Do you need to protect important days or events from migraine?
Do you use multiple treatments to stop or prevent migraines?
Does managing multiple treatments feel like a burden?
Would you feel more in control if you had one treatment for all of your needs?
