BOTOX® is the only FDA-approved for chronic migraines, which means headache on 15 or more days a month. The more frequent the headaches, the better the patient does with BOTOX®.
BOTOX® is a form of botulinum toxin. When botulinum toxin is purified and used in tiny doses, it temporarily reduces muscle contractions for approximately 3 months.
BOTOX® is injected around pain fibers that are involved in headaches. BOTOX® enters the nerve endings and blocks the release of chemicals involved in pain transmission which prevents the activation of pain networks in the brain.
One treatment lasts for 10-12 weeks and with two to three BOTOX® treatments the number of headache days can be reduced by approximately 50%.
