June 2019

What are the market access obstacles that are shaping the US migraine market and which brands are winning out?

  • How are market barriers affecting migraine drug prescribing?
  • How do market barriers affect the market share of leading brands?
  • What specific market access barriers are challenging each brand?
  • Which brands gain and lose the most market share due to market barriers?

Based on the results of an in-depth survey of 100 US-based neurologists and general practitioners, Market Access Impact (US): Migraine identifies the market access barriers that are shaping the competitive landscape for leading migraine brands in the US and provides clear pointers for management action.
