If you experience migraines more than 15 days a month, please call the Neuro Center. BOTOX® injections may help reduce your headache frequency.
BOTOX® is FDA-approved preventative therapy for chronic migraine. It can reduce the frequency of migraine, but it won’t stop your migrains once it’s begun.
Botox is injected into specific areas of your head and neck involved in your migraine pain. It works by blocking the release of certain chemicals involved in the transmission of pain. The effect of Botox lasts for about 3 months.
Botox is well-tolerated by most people and is considered very safe. There are some possible side effects that go away after a day or two including, redness, soreness, or swelling at the injection site, bruising, chills, fatigue, dry mouth, neck stiffness.
Patients who qualify to get Botox injections for migraines get several shots of Botox once every 12 weeks.
Here at the Neuro Center, we focus on identifying the symptoms of your headaches to determine the cause and recommend the appropriate headache treatment.
