Key messages

  • This post hoc analysis of a double-blind, placebo-controlled, 12-week study in chronic migraine (CM) evaluated the effect of erenumab on remission from medication overuse (MO) in patients with CM who lacked success with ≥ 1 prior preventive therapy.
  • Erenumab significantly reduced monthly acute headache medication days compared with placebo in CM patients with MO who had lack of success with prior preventive treatment.
  • Across all definitions of remission from medication overuse, erenumab 140 mg consistently demonstrated numerically better outcomes than erenumab 70 mg.
