VANCOUVER, Canada, July 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cost Can be a Major Roadblock in Migraine Therapy

from migraine.com conducted a survey in 2016 titled: "Migraine in America" with the goal to gain a better understanding of the challenges faced by migraine patients. Over 3,900 people completed the 145-question survey.

The results show that:

  • Over 36% of the patients spent over $1,000 per year on migraine related treatments.
  • 64% of the patients have avoided therapy because of the cost.
  • 62% of the patients asked their doctors for cheaper prescriptions.
