In the quest to find relief from chronic migraine headaches, you might try just about anything. After all, migraines can be painful and debilitating, and they can greatly affect your quality of life.

If you experience migraine symptoms on 15 or more days each month, you have chronic migraines. Over-the-counter or prescription medications may help ease some of your symptoms, but some patients don’t respond well to pain relievers. In some cases, your doctor may prescribe preventive medicines, which are designed to reduce the frequency and severity of your symptoms. According to research published in the journal Neurology, only about one-third of patients with chronic migraines take preventive medicines.

In 2010, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of onabotulinumtoxinA as a treatment for chronic migraines. It’s more commonly known as Botox-A or Botox. If other treatment options haven’t worked for you, it may be time to try Botox.

Botox treatment for migraines has also been approved by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) in the United Kingdom.
