BOTOX is used in adults who have 15 or more migraine headaches per month lasting 4 or more hours per day.
Chronic Migraine is defined as:
BOTOX is injected by needle into several head and neck muscles that may be causing or contributing to your headaches. The radiologist determines the number of injections and the sites required to treat your specific condition.
It is recommended that you get your BOTOX injections every 12 weeks. You may continue this therapy, if deemed effective, after discussing with your practitioner.
Your practitioner will decide whether or not you are eligible for treatment if you are already receiving BOTOX for other conditions. It is very important that you inform your practitioner.
