Has anyone gotten Botox for migraines? I’m considering it since a slew of different meds has had less and less efficacy in preventing and stopping my migraines over the years.

      I'm getting my first injection treatment in 4 (four) days.

      I have gotten it in the past. I would get less migraines than without it

      I got my first round of Botox about a month ago and other than making my eyebrows and eyelids swell up and freezing motion on my forehead I haven’t noticed much of a difference ☹️ I’m trying another round in a couple months though. Nurtec has really helped me but only as a rescue medicine. I tried taking it as a preventative after it was approved and it really upset my stomach, but I also have a whole host of stomach issues so it could have been playing into that. Give nurtec a try!

      I’m getting my first Botox treatment in a couple of weeks . Praying that it helps . Right now I take ubrelvy and sumatriptan and sometimes they don’t even work it’s very frustrating to say the least

      I did it three times, the first it slightly helped the next to it did nothing but I had to do those two times to have it be considered as not effective

      I have! It helps me definitely but it sort of depends where your migraine pain is located in your head, like mine is around my left ear, whole left side of my face, and around the back of my head & neck, so it helps with some of the painful areas but not all of them, but it’s certainly better than nothing especially bc I’ve tried basically every other migraine treatment available.

      I hope it helps you if your doctor prescribes it for you!

      Thanks for the recommendation! I’ve never been on Nurtec. I’ll bring it up at my next neurologist appt.

      I have always wondered about it but I have never done it. I was recently prescribed Nurtec ODT and that really helped me. Many rescue meds make me sick to my stomach or don’t do much but I had no noticeable side effects from Nurtec and it usually does get rid of my migraine in about 30 minutes to an hour after taking the medication.
