BOTOX® prevents on average 8 to 9 headache days and migraine/probable migraine days a month

(vs 6 to 7 for placebo)

 

For adults with Chronic Migraine, 15 or more headache days a month, each lasting 4 hours or more.

BOTOX® is not approved for adults with migraine who have 14 or fewer headache days a month.

What should I tell my doctor before treatment?

Tell your doctor about all your muscle or nerve conditions, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis  (Lou Gehrig’s disease), myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome, as you may be at increased risk of serious side effects.

Indication

BOTOX® is a prescription medicine that is injected to prevent headaches in adults with chronic migraine who have 15 or more days each month with headache lasting 4 or more hours each day in people 18 years or older.

It is not known whether BOTOX® is safe or effective to prevent headaches in patients with migraine who have 14 or fewer headache days each month (episodic migraine).

 

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

BOTOX® may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening. Get medical help right away if you have any of these problems any time (hours  to weeks) after injection of BOTOX®:

 

  • Problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing, due to weakening of associated muscles, can be severe and result in loss of life. You are at the highest risk if these problems are pre-existing before injection. Swallowing problems may last for several months.
  • Spread of toxin effects. The effect of botulinum toxin may affect areas away from the injection site and cause serious symptoms including: loss of strength and all-over muscle weakness, double vision, blurred vision and drooping eyelids, hoarseness or change or loss of voice, trouble saying words clearly, loss of bladder control, trouble breathing, trouble swallowing.

 

There has not been a confirmed serious case of spread of toxin effect away from  the injection site when BOTOX® has been used at the recommended dose to treat  chronic migraine.

BOTOX® may cause loss of strength or general muscle weakness, vision problems,  or dizziness within hours to weeks of taking BOTOX®. If this happens, do not drive  a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities.
