What role do botulinum injections play in the treatment of migraines?

Botulinum toxin-based medicines are being studied to see whether they might aid in reducing migraine discomfort. The medication appears to disrupt the pain transmission channel between the brain and our nerves, according to evidence. When you experience a migraine, there is release of pain-related chemicals called neurotransmitters. Botulinum toxin blocks transmission of those chemicals, usually at the junction of neurons and muscles. When the medication is injected into the muscles surrounding the head, neck and face, it is thought to be absorbed by the neurons, interfering with pain-related neurotransmission. 

Why may I require injections of botulinum toxin to cure my migraines?

Botulinum toxin therapies have been shown in clinical studies to be helpful in the treatment of persistent migraines. Other medicines, as well as a change in lifestyle, may be advised. You may be eligible for this procedure if your doctor finds that you suffer from persistent migraines. Neurologists offer a wide range of treatments for treating persistent migraines, including botulinum toxin injectables. While no one therapy is ideal in every situation, a multi-treatment approach can typically lessen the frequency and severity of your headaches.

What to Expect with Injectable Migraine Treatment?

Botulinum toxin is injected into the muscles beneath your skin in numerous places across your head, face, and neck with a very thin needle. Injections may be given in the forehead, temples, and back of the head and neck. The doctor may inject "trigger sites," which are locations where the headache discomfort originates. ​​Individualized therapies for persistent migraines must be used, taking into account each patient's individual morphology and pain origin sites. It may take many weeks and numerous treatments for the procedure to work. Some individuals discover that they may stop taking the injections without their migraines reappearing. Injections can help individuals with chronic migraines lessen the incidence of their headaches as well as the debilitating symptoms that come with them.

What are the dangers of taking migraine injectables?

Pregnant and nursing mothers, as well as those allergic milk proteins, should avoid botulinum toxin injectables.

Botulinum toxin injectables are reasonably safe when administered by a trained and experienced health care professional. However, some patients report discomfort, swelling, or bruising near the injection site. Other potential adverse effects include:

  • Symptoms of the flu or a headache

  • Eyes that are dry or watery

  • One eyelid, brow, or one side of your mouth is drooping.

  • Drooling

  • Other, more dangerous symptoms may appear eventually, if the poison unintentionally spreads into your body. If you observe any of the following, contact your doctor immediately once.
