Ubrogepant

Pronounced

"ue-BROE-je-pant"

Uses

This medication is used to treat migraine. Ubrogepant may work by changing the amount of a certain natural substance in the brain. It helps to relieve headache, pain, and other migraine symptoms (including nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light/sound). Prompt treatment helps you return to your normal routine and may decrease your need for other pain medications.

This medication is not used to prevent future migraines or lessen how often you get migraines.
