Key messages

  • Initial non-response to galcanezumab does not necessarily preclude a patient from subsequent response, especially if a patient has some initial decrease in monthly migraine headache days.
  • Patients whose conditions worsened during the first two months continued to have poorer outcomes during the final month.
  • The overall benefit of therapy should be determined collaboratively between the physician and patient.
