The FDA has approved the use of Botox Cosmetic for the treatment of migraine headaches in adults. The recommendations were that Botox be used around the head and neck once every three months to help alleviate future headaches.
Botox Cosmetic has been shown to effectively work to prevent migraine headaches that occur at intervals greater than fifteen days or more. However, Botox has not been found to help headaches that occur less than fifteen days.
Migraine headaches can be one of the most debilitating conditions a person can have, causing nausea, vomiting, throbbing pain, sensitivity to sounds and light. This condition can greatly affect people’s lifestyle and well-being.
