All about BOTOX® treatment

BOTOX® is the first FDA-approved preventive treatment for Chronic Migraine. Unlike acute treatments, which are taken to treat a headache or migraine once it's already begun, BOTOX® prevents migraines and headaches before they even start. BOTOX® prevents on average 8 to 9 headache days and migraine/probable migraine days a month (vs 6 to 7 for placebo).

If your doctor recommends it, you may still take acute medications while you are on BOTOX® treatment. BOTOX® is a preventive treatment—which means it works to prevent headache days. Acute treatments, on the other hand, are taken to reduce pain once a headache or migraine has already begun.

BOTOX® has other uses, but the injection sites for Chronic Migraine are specifically designed to prevent migraines and headaches.

Insurance and costs

Pay as little as $0 out of pocket for your BOTOX® treatment.*
Most insurance plans cover the cost of BOTOX® treatment. If you have to pay out-of-pocket for BOTOX® and have commercial insurance, the BOTOX® Savings Program may help you pay as little as $0*. Learn how at BOTOXSavingsProgram.com. *Restrictions and maximum savings limits apply. Patient out-of-pocket expense may vary. Offer not valid for patients enrolled in Medicare, Medicaid, or other federal or state healthcare programs. Please see full Terms and Conditions below.

Most insurance plans cover the cost of treatment. However, some patients with commercial insurance may have to pay out-of-pocket. That's where the BOTOX® Savings Program comes in. The BOTOX® Savings Program was created to help commercially insured patients with these out-of-pocket costs not covered by insurance. The BOTOX® Savings Program offers money back in the form of a check sent to eligible members.

Tell me about Chronic Migraine

Chronic Migraine is defined as having 15 or more headache days each month, with migraine on at least 8 of those days, with headaches lasting 4 hours or longer. Chronic Migraine is a distinct condition from other types of migraine, like episodic migraine. Chronic Migraine occurs more frequently, and the pain is more severe.
