Botox® and Migraine

Migraines affect about 15% of the population. Symptoms include a throbbing headache and are often associated with nausea, vomiting and a dislike of light. There are a number of medical treatments available to treat and prevent them. 

A migraine is usually a moderate or severe headache felt as a throbbing pain on one side of the head.

The NHS website states that many people also have symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and increased sensitivity to light or sound.

Migraine is a common health condition, affecting around one in every five women and around one in every 15 men. They usually begin in early adulthood.

Botox® has recently been licensed to treat individuals who suffer from Chronic Migraines (defined by individuals suffering from migraines for more than 15 days per month). Injections of specific amounts of Botox® into specific anatomical regions have been shown to reduce the frequency of migraines in these individuals.
