Pediatric/Adolescent Migraine

children's study




Children and teens may qualify for this study if they:

  • Are between the ages 12-17 

  • Have at least 1 Migraine per month

  • Have at least 6 Month history of Migraine





Currently, more than half of pediatric/adolescent patients with migraines have 1 to 4 attacks per month, causing interference with their daily activities of life. Although many studies have been done in adults with migraine, doctors continue to research treatment options for migraine in children and teens through clinical studies.

In this study, doctors want to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a dissolving tablet called rimegepant in children and teens 6 to 17 years old. Rimegepant is already approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the acute treatment of migraine in adults.

You and the participant will be asked to attend up to 4 study visits over a period of 19 weeks, inlcuding a 4-week screening period, a 15-week treatment period, and a follow-up visit approximately 7 days after each dose of the study drug. Each study visit will last about 1 - 2 hours.

There is no cost to participate in this study, and no insurance is needed. Study participants will be compensated for enrollment in this study.
