Previous studies showed that lasmiditan is associated with a low risk of cardiovascular treatment-emergent adverse events (AEs), specifically palpitations and tachycardia. No difference in cardiovascular treatment-emergent AE frequency in subjects with or without cardiovascular risk factors was found. Patients who previously participated in phase 3, placebo-controlled, single-attack lasmiditan studies could be enrolled in the open-label, randomised GLADIATOR trial. These included patie...
