Rimegepant: A Review in the Acute Treatment and Preventive Treatment of Migraine.

CNS Drugs 2023 March
Rimegepant [Nurtec® ODT (USA); Vydura® (EU)] is a calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) receptor antagonist approved for the acute treatment of migraine with or without aura in adults, and for the preventive treatment of episodic migraine in adults. Rimegepant is available as an orally disintegrating tablet (ODT), which offers convenience and a potentially faster response time than the conventional tablet formulation. In pivotal phase III trials, rimegepant was more effective than placebo at relieving pain and the most bothersome symptom when taken as needed for the acute treatment of migraine. Rimegepant was also more effective than placebo at reducing the number of monthly migraine days when taken every other day for the preventive treatment of migraine. The beneficial effects of rimegepant in reducing migraine frequency and improving quality of life were maintained over the longer term (up to 52 weeks). Rimegepant was generally well tolerated, with no evidence of hepatotoxicity or cardiovascular toxicity in clinical trials. As the first dual agent approved for both treatment and prevention of migraine, rimegepant represents a useful option for the management of migraine in adults.
