What is a Chronic Migraine?
Chronic migraines are the most debilitating form of migraines. It may be a major challenge for you and your loved ones.
In order to be diagnosed with chronic migraine, you must suffer from headaches on at least 15 days per month (migraines and other headaches included), with 8 of those days being migraines lasting 4 hours or more on at least 4 occasions.
What is Botox for Migraines?
Botox, or Botulinum toxin, is a neurotoxic protein isolated from bacteria. Botox is a toxin, but when administered in extremely low amounts, it can temporarily slow nerve activity in muscles for up to three months.
When a migraine strikes, the brain releases the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which causes the muscles in the head and neck to spasm. Botox, when injected locally, stops muscular contraction by blocking the release of acetylcholine. Botox injections for migraines can help lessen or eliminate the frequency with which patients have painful headaches. Botox has been shown to alleviate nausea and sensitivity to light, sound, and smell when experiencing a headache.

As opposed to treating the symptoms of a headache or migraine once they have already started, this avoids them before they ever begin. In a typical month, Botox will keep you headache-free for an extra eight or nine hours. Almost 500,000 people with persistent migraines have had Botox injections since 2010.

Some patients need other headache therapies during the final two weeks of a Botox cycle because injections can’t be repeated for at least three months.
What to Expect After Botox for Migraines Treatment
Many people report relief after the first Botox treatment for migraines, but it may take two to four injections to get the full effects. The initial two treatments are spaced out by 12 weeks, and subsequent treatments are also spaced out by 12 weeks. Botox patients who report improvement in their migraine symptoms report fewer attacks, less severe attacks, and shorter attacks after treatment.

Is Botox for Chronic Migraines Treatment Right for Me?
If you suffer from persistent migraines but have not found relief from more conventional treatments, Botox for chronic migraines may be the answer. The number of headache-free days you experience may begin to decrease as early as week 4, and they may continue to decrease over the next 24 weeks. You will know if Botox is helping you after two treatments, provided that you space them out by at least 12 weeks.
After the initial two injections, we will consider whether or not to continue therapy based on your responses. You could not reap the full benefits of treatment if you skip more than one round of it per 12 weeks.
