According to the Migraine Research Foundation, thirty-eight million people in the U.S. experience migraine attacks, defined as typically one to two migraines per month. Migraines account for 1.2 million emergency room visits each year. Most people with migraines (75%) cannot obtain complete relief from current prescription medications indicating a need for new treatments. Dihydroergotamine (DHE) administration options are currently limited to intravenous, generally requiring administration in the emergency department, or nasal spray administration which is not well-tolerated by all patients.
