Can’t slow down

“I can’t slow down. I don’t have that luxury,” Gerstein said. She uses Tosymra® to help her get past the migraine pain, fast.

Melissa spent a lot of time pushing through her migraines before discovering Tosymra®. “I just felt like ‘When is this going to end? When can I get up? When can I turn the lights on? When can I go outside and hit the busy streets of NYC?’ ”

“This city is like a jackhammer in your head in itself, every day,” she said. “The urgent relief for me is a home run.”

“I don’t know any moms who can just take the day off and rest it out.”

More than physical pain

Missing out is something no mom wants to experience, because it can generate a lot of guilt. “I need to get rid of my migraine pain quickly, so I don’t miss out on performances my daughter is doing, or soccer games,” Gerstein said.

“Whatever the kids are up to. It’s important to be there; I need to be there.”

Simple and easy

“I’m happy I have quick pain relief. I’m happy that, for me, Tosymra® is easy to use, and it’s something I can carry with me. And it’s a great alternative to an oral medication if you don’t want to swallow medication because you are nauseated,” Gerstein said.

Now that Melissa uses Tosymra®, she wants other women to know migraine pain relief may be possible for them, too. “You don’t have to torture yourself with waiting it out. Talk to your healthcare provider about your options—maybe Tosymra® would be right for you, like it was for me.”

“I just need simple and easy. [Using the e-pharmacy] Blink Pharmacy Plus was the easiest 1-2-3 sign-up. Tosymra® literally arrived at my doorstep.”

Tosymra® is a prescription medicine used to treat acute migraine with or without aura in adults.

Tosymra® is not used to treat other types of headaches such as hemiplegic (that make you unable to move on one side of your body) or basilar (rare form of migraine with aura) migraines. Tosymra® is not used to treat cluster headaches.

Tosymra® is not used to prevent or decrease the number of migraines you have. It is not known if Tosymra® is safe and effective in children under 18 years of age.
