Dr Reddy’s launches drug-free migraine management device Nerivio in Europe

In India, Nerivio is supported by Dr Reddy’s unique patient support programme called ‘M-Free’

Dr Reddy’s Laboratories announced the launch of the drug-free non-invasive migraine management wearable device Nerivio in Germany through its step-down subsidiary betapharm. The launch marks the company’s entry into digital therapeutics in Europe. Nerivio is approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA), and is CE-mark certified in Europe. 

Nerivio was presented in 2023 by Dr Reddy’s at the DGN Kongress organised by the German Association of Neurology in Berlin, and the 17th European Headache Congress held in Barcelona, Spain. Dr Reddy’s will present and launch Nerivio during the Neurological Association of South Africa annual congress on April 17, 2024, in the presence of Dr Stewart Tepper, Professor of Neurology at the Geisel School of Medicine – Dartmouth, and Vice President, New England Institute for Neurology and Headache. In May 2024, Nerivio will also be presented at the International Headache Society 2024 iHEAD meeting in Berlin, Germany. In subsequent months, Dr Reddy’s will launch Nerivio in Spain and the UK.

In India, Nerivio is supported by Dr Reddy’s unique patient support programme called ‘M-Free’. The programme is a comprehensive support system that enhances and streamlines the journey of the patients. M-Free includes services such as onboarding and counselling of patients, device demonstrations, doorstep delivery, flexible payment options, informative content, and dedicated customer care to help patients get the most out of the device. With lifestyle modification as a key recommendation for better management of migraine, M-Free awareness programme offers a suite of value-added services such as nutritionist consultation, yoga and meditation sessions with certified specialists for holistic medicine-free migraine management. 

MV Ramana, Chief Executive Officer, Branded Markets (India and Emerging Markets), Dr. Reddy’s said, “At a time when conversations on migraine focus on migraine as a women’s health issue, relief from migraine through the use of technology and drug-free solutions, challenges associated with managing migraine during the child-bearing age, and distinguishing migraine from headache, we are happy to take our clinically-proven first digital therapeutics product, Nerivio, to patients in our identified markets. Nerivio has had an encouraging start in India, with recommendations from neurologists in India and bringing relief to patients living with migraine. We believe this product meets a genuine unmet clinical need among migraine patients, and has the potential to reduce pill burden in migraine. We look forward to receiving patient and HCP feedback from these markets.”
