Migraine headaches and pregnancy

There haven’t been enough studies to know whether Aimovig is safe to use during pregnancy. Animal studies did not show any risk to the pregnancy when Aimovig was given to a pregnant female. However, animal studies don’t always predict whether drugs will be safe for humans.

If you’re pregnant or considering becoming pregnant, talk with your doctor to check whether Aimovig is right for you. You may need to wait until you’re no longer pregnant before using Aimovig.

Pregnancy registry

If you become pregnant while using Aimovig, you can take part in the drug’s pregnancy registry. A pregnancy registry helps gather information on how certain drugs can affect pregnancy. To learn more, call 833-244-4083, visit this site, or talk with your doctor.

If you’re breastfeeding or planning to do so, it’s important to consider how Aimovig may affect you and your child.

It’s not known whether Aimovig passes into breast milk, so it’s not clear whether Aimovig is safe to use while breastfeeding.

If you’re considering treatment with Aimovig while breastfeeding your child, talk with your doctor about the benefits and risks. You may need to stop breastfeeding during your treatment with Aimovig.
