03 Sep Surprise! BOTOX® prevents occurrence of migraine!
If you are in the Palm Beach Gardens area, and suffer from chronic migraine, then contact Palm Beach Neurological Center today to learn more about how BOTOX® treatments may help you.
A Surprising Treatment for Chronic Migraine is BOTOX®
If you are one of over 3 million patients diagnosed with chronic migraine in the US, then you know how devastating migraine is. You suffer from 15 (or more) headache days, with the headaches lasting longer than 4 hours at a time, in a month. That’s a significant chunk of your time dealing with a type of pain that is often overwhelming.
There is not a lot you can do to try and prevent the occurrence of migraine. You can try to learn what triggers them, watch your diet, hydrate, pay attention to signs that a migraine is imminent and then try to forestall it with medication. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Fortunately, there may now be an alternative that could cut the occurrence of migraine by half. The FDA has just approved BOTOX® for the use of preventive treatments in adults for chronic migraine.
BOTOX® is the first and only FDA-approved treatment to prevent migraine
The cosmetic sector offers a surprising answer to migraine prevention. BOTOX® does not just help people look younger; it also proves to be an effective treatment for migraine. BOTOX® is the first and only FDA-approved treatment to prevent migraine in adults suffering from chronic migraine. Over the course of two double blind clinical studies involving 1,384 adult patients, it was found that BOTOX® significantly lessened the occurrence of headache days (versus a placebo).
After 24 weeks, patients receiving BOTOX® injections had 8 to 9 fewer headache days per month compared with the baseline of 20 headache days. Consistent treatment is needed as the benefits of BOTOX® begin to wear off after three months.
