Starting today, taking care of your health just got a whole lot easier. Felix is now offering migraine medication to our growing list of or services
You can’t predict when a migraine will hit, but you can be prepared for when it does.
Those who have previously been diagnosed as suffering from migraines will now be able to get prescription medication delivered to have on hand when they need.
No more in-person doctor visits. No more trips to the pharmacy. No more being caught without medication when a migraine hits.
Getting medication for migraines through Felix works in a similar way to getting treatment in other Felix categories.
First, if you haven’t, you’ll need to register an account. This helps us save your progress in the online assessment.
Once you've done that, we’ll ask you a series of questions about your experience with migraines.
Next, you’ll choose your medication, as well as how much and how often you wish to receive it.
Your Felix doctor will then review your information. If your prescription is approved, we’ll ship your migraine medication right to you.
Felix offers more than seven different options for migraine medication including both pills and nasal sprays.
You will be able to choose your preferred medication as you complete the online assessment.
Migraine medication can be an effective way of getting relief from migraines, and there is a range of options available.
The first thing to establish is whether the headaches you’re experiencing are migraines.
For example, if your headaches are abrupt, accompanied by a fever, chest pain or rapid heart rate, neurological symptoms like facial droop or muscle weakness, or they worsen when you change position, these could be the signs of something more serious.
In these cases, we recommend consulting a medical professional as soon as possible, and in the emergency department if necessary.
If you experience less severe, or less frequent migraines, prescription migraine medication might not be right for you.
In this situation try other pain relief first, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol), Ibuprofen (Advil), or Naproxen (Aleve).
At Felix we take your health seriously, and want to make sure you get the right treatment. That’s why migraine prescriptions are only available to people who have a prior confirmed diagnosis of migraine headaches without any worsening signs or symptoms.
If you have previously used migraine medication to treat migraine headaches, but found they haven’t worked out, you can let your doctor know as part of the Felix online assessment.
