Chronic Migraines are a game of chance. Put the odds on your side with BOTOX ®.

BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is not only used for esthetic purposes but is also a prescription medicine that is injected to prevent headaches in adults with chronic migraines.  If you have 15 or more days each month with a headache lasting 4 or more hours each day you may be a good candidate for therapeutic BOTOX® treatments.

There are two types of treatment options for Chronic Migraines

There are many ways to manage Chronic Migraine; most medications are either acute or preventive. Headache Specialists often prescribe preventive medications for Chronic Migraine patients; however, a treatment plan may include acute and preventive treatment, so it’s important to understand how they work to manage Chronic Migraine.¹

Acute Medications:

  • Taken when a migraine or headache is starting or has already begun
  • May stop or reduce pain but does not prevent a headache or migraine

Preventative (or prophylactic) medications:

  • Taken to prevent headaches and migraines from occurring

Botox® is a preventative treatment.

If you have Chronic Migraine, a preventive medication like BOTOX® may be an option for you. BOTOX® is the first and only preventive treatment approved by the FDA for adults with Chronic Migraine (15 or more headache days a month, each lasting 4 hours or more). BOTOX® therapy is not approved for adults with migraine who have 14 or fewer headache days a month.³
