Patient Stories

What patients are saying

Headshot of Ellie, a patient


“Sometimes, I'd skip my medication to avoid side effects, and just suffer through the pain. Now I don't have to worry about the trade-offs between my migraine and feeling not well at all.”

Headshot of Sharol, a patient


“It works every time I take it. It changes everything to know that if I have an attack, I have something that will allow me to be present, without worrying about if I'm going to be debilitated by medication or debilitated by my actual headache.”

Headshot of Alicia, a patient


“I get the migraine, I take the pill, and it starts to work within minutes. I can go back to doing the things that I want to do.”

These are real patients who are taking or have taken Nurtec ODT. Individual results may vary.

The study included 1351 people who took either Nurtec ODT (669 people) or placebo (682 people). More people taking Nurtec ODT experienced freedom from pain, freedom from MBS, freedom from functional disability, and pain relief at 2 hours vs placebo. More people taking Nurtec ODT were also able to maintain these benefits through 48 hours vs placebo. Additionally, more people taking Nurtec ODT experienced pain relief and freedom from functional disability as early as 60 minutes vs placebo.

Not for the preventive treatment of migraine.
