Botox for migraines

Jan 20, 2015 10:22 PM

I am currently on Botox for migraines but it seems to wear off after about two months. I was wondering if anyone else has similar problems, and if there were other preventatives that they have taken in conjunction with it. I am a student that can't afford to miss class and migraines often impede my studies.

I've never used botox. I've had ESI (epidural steroid injections) at the C6-C7 level, when I was having nearly daily headaches from migraines, (triggered by my last neck surgery in 1995) for a year. I'm two years out from ESIs and only get migraines occasionally. I'm having another type headache wake me several times a week.
