Botox Approved to Treat Chronic Migraines

October 16, 2010

(ChattahBox Health News) – The Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of anti-wrinkle injection Botox to treat chronic migraines.  The green light was based on two studies funded by its manufacturer, Allergan, which involved 1,384 adult patients who received Botox injections experienced between 7.8 and 9.2 fewer days of headaches than those who didn’t. Chronic migraines , defined as those that occur 15 or more days per month, “are one of the most disabling forms of headache,” said Dr. Russell Katz, a member of the FDA’s drug-evaluation team, and they affect about 3.2 million Americans. The drug, which is a purified form of the deadly toxin that causes botulism, whose generic name is onabotulinumtoxinA, has not been proven to prevent migraines that occur with less frequency, is also used to treat various muscle-spasm conditions, such as severe neck spasms.

    I have used botox for a long time off and on and I never get headaches . I think it is a great product , just wish it’s effects would last a little longer . At best a Patient will need to get followups every 4 mos. I checked last week and my Dr is offering for 12.00 per unit .. I typically take a minimum of 24 units. and have gone up to 62 units before . So it can get expensive but I love the effects and for people paying 35.00 a pop for a migraine pill it could be well worth a try . Besides they will get the cosmetic effects to go along with help for their Migraines! GO FOR IT!!! I also reccommend anyone remove heavy metals and toxins form their body which could be an underlying cause to many health problems . I am a CANCER Patient/SURVIVOR 2 YRS NOW . I was stage 3 with lymphatic involvement so it was not good. I did alot of research while going through Chemo and found this info about Heavy metals ,toxins and chemicals in the water we drink , food we eat and air that we breath , pesticides etc… I got on Liquid ZEOLITE BY WAIORA HTTP://WWW.toxindangers.com there are three clicks and the 3rd takes one to a 3rd party site where testing NATURAL CELLULAR DEFENSE was shown to be the only product proven effective and effective!!! I was on it and ordered my 1st 3 bottles after chemotherapy took 10 drops 3x day for 1st month… after 3-5 drops 3x day and have been doing so for 2 yrs now . I have to say how amazed my DRS were at how fast I healed and how fast how i came out of CHEMO BRAIN!!! I have so much energy and require less sleep because I do not have the BOG DOWN in my system . I am a SR. Flight Attendant for a major Airline and other Jr F/A’S are amazed that I can fly the hours I do double schedule all the time and NOT BE TIRED. OR JETLAGGED. I know the NCD works and is such an amazing little product I just want to share it with the World! We even had a man with stage 4 Cancer who got on NCD 1 month before going to MD Anderson in Houston and by the time he got there , test were rerun only to discover 90% of his Cancer was GONE!!!! Today he is Cancer FREE ! His name is Rodney Lay and he is a musician in Nashville. there are many hundreds and hundreds of testimonials like this so I hope anyone reading this will check out above website and then go to this website for more info and even choose to join as a member to buy your product wholesale like I do GIVE it a chance 3 bottles 1st month and see the difference it can make in your life like it did mine . This is for young people , pets, anyone… I lost my 21 yr old son to terminal lung cancer 6 yrs ago and had this product came out when he was sick I truly believe he would still be alive today… Give yourself and your loved ones a chance at a healthier and more productive LIFE!!!
