About the Study

There are few treatments approved for the acute treatment of migraines in adolescents and only one treatment approved for children ages 6 – 11 years old. Rochester Clinical Research is conducting a research study to test the safety, effectiveness, and tolerability of a migraine medication called Lasmiditan for  migraines in children. The study drug works by blocking the pain pathway from the nerves in your head.
