There are 3.5 million people in the United States living with Chronic Migraine.
Medication that you take after a headache begins is called acute medication. Medication you take to help prevent a headache or migraine is called preventive medication.
Chronic Migraine is defined as having 15 or more headache days each month, with migraine on at least 8 of those days, and each headache day lasting 4 hours or longer. Chronic Migraine is more frequent and severe than other types of migraine, like episodic migraine .
Over a 90-day period, people living with Chronic Migraine miss, on average, over 60 days of planned activities.
Migraine headaches, the more debilitating type of headaches, last from 4 to 72 hours.
Migraines can keep a person from working or other daily activities. At its worst, a migraine pain can require a trip to the hospital.
Over 550,000 Chronic Migraine patients have been treated with BOTOX® since it received FDA approval in 2010. BOTOX® is the only preventive treatment approved exclusively for Chronic Migraine. If your doctor is not a BOTOX® Specialist, or you’re not sure, you can use the specialist locator at the end of this quiz.
