Botox For Migraine

Recently, Dr. Barrish added Botox for Migraine to the services he offers. According to Dr. Barrish, clinical studies have shown significant benefit for those who suffer from chronic migraines, defined as at least 15 headache days/month. Botox has been shown to be effective in reducing the frequency of migraine headaches, and is now FDA approved for that purpose. The realization that Botox could help treat migraines came about anecdotally from patients receiving Botox Cosmetic, who also suffered from migraine headaches. They reported a reduction in migraine frequency and severity. Clinical studies confirmed the findings, and now a standardized injection protocol has been established. Injections are performed at various sites in the forehead, scalp, and neck region, and are typically repeated every 3 months.
