BOTOX® for Chronic Migraines.
BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is the first and only preventive treatment approved by the FDA for adults with Chronic Migraines.
Not knowing when a headache or migraine will occur can be challenging. While other treatments may help you once you already have a headache, a preventive medication like BOTOX® therapy is approved to help prevent headache days.
The Two Types of Treatment Options
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
