Botox to treat chronic migraines
According to the recently performed clinical trial, Botox injections at fixed-sites such as the forehead, temples and neck muscles can significantly reduce both the number of days a headache lasts and the number of headache episodes.

The effectiveness of an anti-headache medication is calculated based on the drug's effect on the number of headache days rather than on the number of attack episodes, FDA guidelines suggest.

The May 2008 American Academy of Neurology's meeting announced botulinum toxin type A to be ineffective in treating chronic headaches.

Millions of individuals worldwide suffer from chronic migraines - headaches that affect a patient for 15 or more days throughout each month.
