Clinical studies show close to 70 per cent of patients experienced more than 50 per cent reduction in migraine days after one year of treatment

Chronic Migraine sufferers in Canada now have an option to prevent the onset of headaches that occur over 15 days a month and leave patients debilitated. Health Canada has approved BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) manufactured by Allergan, Inc. as a prophylactic (preventive) treatment for headaches in adult patients with Chronic Migraine who suffer from headaches 15 days or more per month, lasting four hours a day or longer.
