    I started Botox treatment in Jan 2019 and have had 3 treatments as of now Aug 2019. At first I was very satisfied with the migraine relief I was feeling. It is such a fabulous and strange feeling to be almost migraine free. But while I was experiencing relief the side effects creeped up on me. The shots were easy to tolerate so no pain for me there. But the feeling of not being able to hold my hea ... Show Full Comment

    I was having at least 15 or more headaches per month. I just had my 3rd round of Botox. It has saved my job since I was getting to the point that I was thinking I could not stay employed due to the headaches. Few side effects have been noted. It has been a life saver for me and I consider myself very lucky!

    I am a 42yr old female that was prescribed these injections by my neurologist after being diagnosed with complex migraine syndrome. I just had my 3rd set of injections 10 days ago. After my first set, I was severely fatigued for a few days after and I didn't have a migraine for 12wks, but I landed in ER with heart palpitations and shortness of breath, nausea, etc. I had no idea it could be rel ...

    30 some odd shots every 3 months. I've done probably 6 or 7 rounds by now. At first I thought it was going well. Crazy how when you have head pain all the time you actually notice the days you DONT have the pain. How much we took those for granted before our journey of migraines. Anyway, I think I experience a bit of placebo effect. But I notice that I now get pain in other places I wasn' ... Show Full Comment

    I went from 15 days per month migraines to every day for 3 months after getting 1 'round of Botox injections. My neurologist then gave up on me. My PDP prescribed elavil which helped some.
