Should I take the 50 or the 100 mg dose of Ubrelvy, the new migraine medication?

Orange County Migraine & Headache Center

Both the 50 & the 100 mg doses of Ubrelvy (Ubrogepant) showed good efficacy over placebo in clinical trials. Both doses are FDA approved for the acute treatment of migraine with or without aura in adults. Either dose may be used. If you start with 50 mg and are not headache free in 2 hours, then you may consider increasing to the 100 mg as your usual dose. Importantly, we have options for dosing. Once taken, either dose may be repeated in 2 hours and the maximum in 24 hours is 200 mg. To learn more, go to
