New oral migraine drug called Amerge

    You'll see a new oral migraine drug called Amerge. Glaxo is introducing it now in the U.S....a little later in Canada.

    Amerge (naratriptan) is similar to Imitrex (sumatriptan)...except Amerge is longer-acting.

    This means fewer recurrent headaches with Amerge than with Imitrex. About 40% of patients using Imitrex have recurrent headaches because of its short half-life.
