NEW HAVEN, Conn. , July 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Khloé Kardashian joins efforts with Biohaven Pharmaceuticals to launch the Take Back Today campaign to empower people with migraine to share their stories in an online community, learn about new ways to manage their disease and get back to what matters most – whether that is spending more time with family, friends, a favorite hobby or work. For more than 20 years, Khloé has experienced first-hand the debilitating impact of migraine, an often-misunderstood disease, which inspired her to join this campaign to help other people with migraine.
"Like others, my migraine blindsides me when it strikes and takes away whatever I had planned for my day. When a migraine hits, all I want to do is lie down in a quiet, dark room, and it leaves me feeling isolated and helpless. I dread those migraine days and fear that the migraine pain is going to be bad enough to keep me from being there for my family, friends, work and most importantly, my daughter," said entrepreneur, TV personality, executive producer and mom, Khloé Kardashian. Khloé often faces migraine symptoms such as intense pain, nausea, temporary impaired vision and dizziness. She continued, "For too long, I have also had to deal with the stigma that migraine is just another headache and that I should just 'get it over it.' People don't understand how disabling migraine can be, especially when I have to cancel plans at the last minute."
Khloé has been working with her doctor to better manage her migraine and she recently started using NURTEC™ ODT (rimegepant), an orally dissolving tablet that is an acute treatment. Khloé stated, "For me, NURTEC ODT was different than other treatments I tried. NURTEC ODT worked fast and allowed me to get back to normal so that I could take back my day. I'm sharing my story so others with migraine do not feel alone and can be empowered to Take Back Today from migraine."
