Botox for migraines is a therapeutic treatment that may help prevent the occurrence of chronic migraine.
Botox is FDA approved for chronic migraines defined as headaches occurring 15 or more days per month. It is delivered via tiny injections in the head and neck and is administered every three months. This procedure is done in the office by your healthcare provider and usually takes about the same amount of time as an office visit.
It is a particularly good treatment for patients who have tried many oral therapies that have not worked to prevent headaches.
For additional information about Botox for migraines including possible side effects, please make an appointment with one of our caring providers at The Manhattan Center For Headache & Neurology. We look forward to speaking with you!
