What is BOTOX®?

What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is part of a group of drugs known as biologics—biologic medicines are made from living things. BOTOX® is a purified protein that is made from a type of bacteria called Clostridium botulinumtype A.

BOTOX® is injected to prevent headaches in adults with Chronic Migraine who have 15 or more headache days each month with headache lasting 4 hours or more 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).

In clinical trials, BOTOX® provided a significant reduction in headache days after the first treatment. After the second treatment (at 24 weeks), BOTOX® prevented 8 to 9 headache days a month (vs 6 to 7 for placebo). You may start to feel results as early as 4 weeks. Over the course of 2 treatment sessions, you should notice a reduction in headache days.
