Botox for Migraines
While Botox is most commonly known for smoothing fine facial wrinkles, the medicine received FDA approval for the treatment of chronic migraine in October 2010. Chronic migraine are defined as headaches that occur on 15 or more days per month for more than 3 months. In fact, the more frequent the headache, the better the patient does with Botox.
Botox is injected around pain fibers that are involved in headaches. Botox enters the nerve endings around where it is injected and blocks the release of chemicals involved in pain transmission. This prevents activation of pain networks in the brain.
Botox prevents migraine headaches before they start, but takes time to work. Patients see increasing benefit with an increase in the number of treatment cycles. One treatment lasts for 10-12 weeks, and patients reported that two Botox treatments reduced the number of headache days by approximately 50%.
