How Ellie rediscovered her future with Nurtec ODT

My junior year of high school, migraine took over my life. I would get migraines so often it became who I was. It was a nightmare. But finding Nurtec ODT has helped me take my life back.

Any time I have a stressful exam or my period is coming up, I know I can count on Nurtec ODT to prevent my migraines.

Migraine was the boss

When migraine took over my life, it made me feel like everything I've ever worked for was going down the drain. I was considering not even going to college.

I lost a lot of friends because of migraine. I'd have to skip out on functions and going out. My family had to revolve their whole lives around my migraines, too.

When I first started getting them, my mom brought me to every single doctor you could possibly imagine. I've tried everything for my migraines.

Nurtec ODT's helped me get back to myself and:

  • Pursue my physician assistant career
  • Be a present daughter, sister & friend
  • Enjoy yoga, spin and running

The clinical trial that gave me hope

In 2018, I enrolled in a clinical trial evaluating Nurtec ODT. And it made a big difference. It's the only thing that's allowed me to live my life again.

I now use Nurtec ODT to treat and prevent my migraines. I know if I get a migraine, I can just take my Nurtec ODT, and I'll be good.
