Don't rub the injection spots..if it has a dot of blood there just dab it with a cotton ball. I take a few cotton balls with me.

Sheryl you can use the Good Rx coupons as long as you don't have Medicare Part D. You might want to use the coupon if it is cheaper than Medicare. I have just been exploring alternatives. Take a look at Good Rx. Does anyone else have any suggestions and/or good experience with this subject? CKay

My neurologist told me its ok to take zyrtec because my botox sites were itchy. Now, no problem! Remind your Dr if you’re on aspirin or another blood thinner. I hope you get the good results that i have. ❤️
I got my injections yesterday and this morning, no headache! This is in contrast to the constant low grade headaches i had for two weeks prior (plus my migraines with barometric changes).
It may take a couple of treatments to get the maximum benefit. I’ve been getting treatments now for 2.5 years.

No numbing cream before application. It felt like i was wearing a baseball cap of protection on my head. It was great for all the surface stuff. It didn't do anything for the deep pain in my head

Sheryl,
I am sorry to hear that. Would good Rx coupons help you.
Ubrelvy has a prescription assistance program. Do you have a large Medicare deductible and/or out-of-pocket expenses? CKay
