Neuromodulators for Migraines

If you've received a migraine diagnosis and suffer from frequent migraine episodes, you might be curious about ways to proactively manage them.

Botox, also known as OnabotulinumtoxinA, gained approval in 2010 for adults with chronic migraines. To be eligible, you must meet the following criteria:

  • A history of recurring migraine headaches.
  • Experience headaches (including tension-type headaches) on most days, which totals 15 or more days in a month, and each headache episode lasts for at least 4 hours.

It's important to note that Botox treatment is not authorized if you:

  • Experience headaches on 14 or fewer days each month.
  • Have different types of headaches, such as cluster headaches.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Botox work to treat a migraine headache?

Botox's mechanism for treating migraines is intricate, involving a reduction in the release of inflammatory and excitatory neurotransmitters and proteins. Neurotransmitters, which transmit signals in the nervous system, and proteins with crucial structural and functional roles in cells are part of this process.

Among these protein neurotransmitters, calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is noteworthy as it tends to be elevated in migraine sufferers. Botox helps by suppressing pain signals from peripheral nerves and reducing CGRP activity, which is often overactive in migraine patients.

CGRP is a target in various other migraine-specific medications, both preventive and acute.

How is Botox from Migraines Administered?

The Botox treatment for chronic migraines involves administering 30-40 injections into the head and neck region every 12 weeks. These injections are typically targeted at the forehead, temples, back of the head, upper neck, and shoulders. The entire procedure is brief, taking less than 10 minutes, and is generally well-received by patients.

What are the potential side effects?

Weakness is one of the most frequently observed side effects of Botox. Since Botox is administered in the areas surrounding the face, head, neck, and shoulders for chronic migraines, patients may encounter the following side effects:

  • Drooping of the eyelid or eyebrow
  • Neck weakness
  • Shoulder weakness

Minimizing contact with the injection sites for 24 hours can help mitigate the risk of weakness, although it cannot entirely eliminate it. If weakness does manifest, it is typically temporary and resolves within 12 weeks. Additional potential side effects encompass:

  • Headache
  • Neck pain
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Muscle pain

Am I an ideal candidate for Botox treatment in addressing chronic migraines?

If you're an adult grappling with chronic migraines, you might be a suitable candidate for Botox injections. It's worth noting that Botox lacks FDA approval for individuals experiencing migraines on 14 or fewer days each month.

Given the potential for significant side effects associated with Botox, it's imperative to communicate your other medical conditions and medications with your doctor. If you have neuromuscular conditions like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome, you may be at a heightened risk of experiencing severe side effects, including difficulties with swallowing or breathing.

It's essential to refrain from Botox injections if you've had an allergic reaction to any form of botulinum, which includes:

  • Myobloc® (rimabotulinumtoxinB)
  • Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA)
  • Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA)
