PUT THE ODDS ON YOUR SIDE WITH BOTOX
BOTOX® is the only FDA-approved, preventive treatment that is injected by a doctor every 12 weeks for adults with Chronic Migraine (15 or more headache days a month, each lasting 4 hours or more). BOTOX® prevents up to 9 headache days a month (vs up to 7 for placebo). BOTOX® therapy is not approved for adults with migraine who have 14 or fewer headache days a month.
When to expect results
In clinical trials, BOTOX® provided a significant reduction in headache days after the first treatment. After the second treatment (at 24 weeks), BOTOX® prevented up to 9 headache days a month (vs up to 7 with placebo injection).
Why commit to 2 treatments?
Committing to 2 treatment sessions is important in order to see how BOTOX® is working for you, since BOTOX® showed significant reduction in headache days at 24 weeks. Talk to your doctor about your progress, and as you start to see changes in the amount of headache days you’re having each month, keep track with our Headache Diary.
What happens next: a 12-week treatment schedule
Based on your progress, you and your doctor will discuss re-treatment every 12 weeks. Remember: BOTOX® is a preventive treatment, which means it's taken to prevent headaches and migraines from occurring. So, it is recommended that treatment be given once every 12 weeks.
The best way for you and your doctor to know if BOTOX® is meeting your treatment needs is to give it time to work, so talk to your doctor, and stay on track.
