For those of you who thought BOTOX® was only useful to remove wrinkles, think again. It has genuine therapeutic value as well.
Recently, many people have been using BOTOX® to treat migraine headaches. Millions of Americans suffer from these debilitating headaches, which when severe enough, can prevent you from carrying out your daily activities.
The Headache Care Center in Springfield, Missouri, has recently conducted a six-month study evaluating the effectiveness of BOTOX® in relieving migraines. The study found that patients who received BOTOX® injections experienced a significant decrease in the frequency and intensity of their migraines.
The Food and Drug Administration is conducting studies of their own, and as of yet, have not approved BOTOX® for use in migraine prevention. However, doctors have indicated that the outlook is promising for the FDA to approve BOTOX® for this purpose.
While BOTOX® will not cure migraines, it can be a valuable tool in controlling them and minimizing the accompanying pain. Many people who have started taking BOTOX® for their migraines have reported a dramatic improvement in their daily lives.
You should consult your doctor to see if you are an ideal candidate to try BOTOX® as a remedy for your migraines.
