How much is Emgality with insurance?

The cost of Emgality with insurance will depend on your insurance plan. Your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

Emgality prices without insurance will vary depending on the dose and type you buy (120 mg or 300 mg pre-filled syringe or injection pen), and prices can also vary by retailer. As a guide, one 120 mg pre-filled syringe or injection pen can cost around $800.

What is Emgality?

Emgality is a prescription medicine given to adults to prevent migraines and to treat episodic cluster headaches. It’s a prescription medicine that can prevent you from having migraines and that can lessen the symptoms of cluster headaches.

You take Emgality by injecting it under your skin (subcutaneous injection) using either a pre-filled syringe or injection pen. You typically take one injection a month to keep your migraines at bay or inject it when a period of cluster headaches begins. Make sure you always take your Emgality as directed by the doctor who prescribes it to you.

Emgality active ingredients

The active ingredient in Emgality is called galcanezumab. It is a monoclonal antibody that helps to stop migraines from happening and helps to lessen episodic cluster headaches. Part of the process that brings migraines and cluster headaches is a widening and opening up of the blood vessels in your brain. This is caused by a substance your body naturally produces called calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP).

Emgality attaches to CGRP to stop it working. This prevents it from opening up your blood vessels and assists them to return to their normal size, which has been shown to help stop migraines and can reduce the symptoms of cluster headaches.  

Emgality side effects & Emgality drug interactions

The most common side effects caused by Emgality include:

  • Reactions at the site of injection, including swelling, redness, and pain
  • Constipation
  • Itching
  • Rashes
  • Vertigo (a feeling of dizziness or “spinning”)

In rare instances, Emgality can cause more serious side effects, including severe allergic reactions that can cause itching, rashes, hives, swelling of the face, mouth, tongue, and throat, and problems breathing.

Emgality can also interact with other medications. This can change how Emgality and the other medications work and can make some side effects more likely. Tell your prescribing physician about all drugs you’re taking, including vitamins, and herbal and dietary supplements.
