BOTOX® is indicated for the treatment of headaches in adult patients with chronic migraine (15 days per month with headache lasting 4 hours a day or longer).
Patients with Chronic Migraine typically suffer with headaches and migraines on more days in the month than days they are headache free. They can suffer from nausea and/or vomiting, blurred vision and can experience sensitivity to light and loud noises. Our providers may consider such patients for treatment with BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) if you experience 15 or more days each month with headache, lasting 4 hours or longer each day. BOTOX® is designed to prevent these headaches before they start.
Our providers will inject BOTOX® into certain head and neck muscle areas. It usually takes longer than 1 treatment cycle (12 weeks) to see a benefit with BOTOX® with primary efficacy endpoint at 24 weeks. Repeat treatments are recommended every 12 weeks (per physician’s clinical decision). BOTOX® comes in a vial that is kept at a cool temperature until our providers are ready to mix it with saline before the patient is due to be injected. Depending on the medical condition being treated, BOTOX® is injected into muscles or areas of the body according to the FDA prescribing information and our provider’s clinical judgment.
