Neurologist Advises: Botox for Chronic Migraines Provides Relief to Those Suffering
Date:7/16/2014

(PRWEB) July 16, 2014

For adults with Chronic Migraines, clinically indicated as 15 or more headache days a month, each lasting 4 hours or more, BOTOX® is the first and only FDA-approved preventive treatment proven to reduce headache days every month. BOTOX® can prevent up to nine headache days a month. Brody Henkel, M.D. of Neurological Specialties of Tampa is now speaking about the administration of Botox within his practice to help those suffering from this chronic condition and want to shed light on this new prevention therapy.

Not knowing when a headache or migraine will occur can be challenging. While other treatments may help you once you already have a headache, a preventive medication like BOTOX® therapy is approved to help prevent headache days.

BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medicine that is injected to prevent headaches in adults with chronic migraines, according to Allergan, the manufacturer of BOTOX®. There are many ways to manage Chronic Migraines; most medications are either acute or preventive.

Headache Specialists often prescribe preventive medications for Chronic Migraine patients; however, a treatment plan may include acute and preventive treatment, so it's important to understand how they work to manage Chronic Migraines.

Henkel provides insight that patients should discuss with their doctor whether it is appropriate for them to include BOTOX® as a preventative treatment. Appropriate questions to consider should include:

1. On average, how many days each month do you experience headaches?
2. On average, how many days per month are you headache-free?
3. Do you have headaches that last 4 hours or more?
4. Do you experience nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light or sound with your headaches?
5. How much of an effect do headaches and/or migraines have on your daily life?
