With the recent FDA approval, Botox can now be used to help prevent headaches for adults suffering from Chronic Migraine symptoms.
Yes, we’re talking about the same Botox that has gained extreme popularity as a means to slow the progression of fine lines and wrinkles. Although it has been used for off-label purposes like excessive sweating and overactive bladder, this is the first non-anti-aging uses for Botox to receive FDA approval.
For now, the FDA has only approved the treatment for those adults suffering from Chronic Migraine, a condition in which a person suffers from 15 or more headache days a month. Those suffering from 14 or less are not approved to receive the newly approved Botox treatment.
MIGRAINE TREATMENT WITH BOTOX
Most likely, you have experienced a migraine at some point in your life. It is that throbbing sensation in your head that can lead to nausea and sensitivity to light and sound. Imagine dealing with these headaches for an entire half of the month. An estimated 3.2 million Americans deal with these Chronic Migraine symptoms, yet 80% of Americans have not been properly diagnosed.
This FDA approved treatment involves multiple injections of Botox around the head and neck every 12 weeks in order to best prevent migraine symptoms.
