Botox® for Migraine

Botox® for Migraines

At the Kane Hall Barry Headache Clinic

Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA) because of its ability to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the face. What is less known is that Botox®  treatment can help prevent migraine headache for chronic migraine patients (more than 15 days per month). Botox® does not treat migraine headache symptoms that have already begun.

We typically prescribe Botox® treatment every twelve weeks for migraines. Multiple doses are injected with a small needle in specific points along the patient’s head and neck. Patients tell us that feels like tiny pinpricks. Not a margarita by the pool, but not a terrible ordeal either.

It may take up to 14 days for the patient to experience improvement. Some patients need a second set of injections to begin to see a reduction in migraine episodes. Botox® injections may not work for some patients and side effects include problems with swallowing, speaking, or breathing.

Kane Hall Barry Neurologists and Nurse Practitioners have years of experience treating patients with chronic migraine, including using Botox® as a means of prevention.

Botox® is a prescription medicine that is injected to prevent headaches in adults with Chronic Migraine who have 15 or more days each month with headache lasting 4 or more hours each day in people 18 years or older. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit MedWatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088. For more information refer to the Medication Guide or talk with your doctor.
