Demonstrated efficacy in treating
acute migraine attacks1

In 3 randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials, VYDURA* demonstrated significant improvements vs placebo in treating migraine attacks.1

*The acute treatment trials used either VYDURA (303) or a tablet formulation bioequivalent to VYDURA (301, 302).2

VYDURA demonstrated superiority in freedom from pain and freedom from most bothersome symptom co-primary endpoints vs placebo1Significant improvement in pain relief and ability to get back to normal activities was seen within 60 minutes in patients treated with VYDURA vs placebo3VYDURA provided sustained pain relief from a migraine attack for up to 48 hours1VYDURA was effective in patients with a history of triptan treatment failure5 
  • A pooled, post hoc analysis of the 3 double-blind, placebo-controlled trials (N=3507 subjects) of similar design compared the efficacy of VYDURA 75 mg or a rimegepant 75 mg tablet bioequivalent to placebo for the acute treatment of a migraine attack5
  • Triptan failure was defined as a self-report of a history of discontinuing 1 or more triptans due to inadequate efficacy and/or tolerability5
