People with migraines sometimes elect to have botox injections which may or may not improve their daily quality of life. Botox works by blocking nerve activity in the muscle which leads to a temporary paralysis in muscle activity. Botox treatment along with lifestyle changes and knowledge of migraine triggers may help alleviate migraine pain.
On MyMigraineTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with migraines, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Botox is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about Botox:
Botox shots yesterday. I forgot to get my Indocen refilled yesterday. Praying to get it refilled today or it will be a very long weekend. Ever since I went to the Diamond Headache Clinic my migraines are easier to identify & treat (without Immatrex).
Don’t stop trying because you will find the right medication to help soon. My combination of medications for migraines is zolmitripitan, prednisone, calcium channel blocker and maxeran. And am currently doing Botox treatments. Good luck, hope you find relief soon!
While I had posted last month that the first round of Botox had seen a real improvement in the lower amount of migraines over that 3-month period, these past 3 weeks since getting the 2nd round I’ve had a return of frequent migraines 😟. Not at the level of needing to go to the ER (so far...) but daily. I will see this treatment through, and do the 3rd round of injections.
