Botox for Migraines


BOTOX® prevents on average 8 to 9 headache days and migraine/probable migraine days a month (vs 6 to 7 for placebo ).

For adults with Chronic Migraine, 15 or more headache days a month, each lasting 4 or more hours. BOTOX® is not approved for fewer than 14 headache days a month.

Schedule your consult to discuss your treatment plan. Depending on your insurance, you may have a co-pay with your visit.

Chronic Migraine is 15 or more headache days each month, with migraine on at least 8 of those days, each lasting 4 or more hours.

With episodic migraine, you'd have 14 or fewer headache days a month.

If you’re treating your headaches and migraines, think back to before you started treatment. How many headache days did you have each month? If you had 15 or more headache days a month in any 3-month period, you could still have Chronic Migraine.
