Is Botox effective?

I’ve had two, I believe, rounds of Botox. The first round worked fairly good. It wore off a few weeks before my second round. My doctor claimed he strengthens the formula (or doseage or whichever) and I go back in January… expect I’ve been suffering extreme migraines since I got Botox the second time with hardly any relief.

I’m terrified Botox isn’t going to work for me. Has anyone else had this experience? I’m new to the migraine forum so I’ll do some exploring but I’m terrified. Botox was the answer, so my doctor claimed. I have chronic migraines in the temples (sometimes both temples, sometimes one) and face. As well as visual ques that never go away. They’re constant. Please leave your stories below, thank you so so much.

    My first series didn’t do much, the second series helped a lot, eased up my jaw clinching and my headaches and migraines subsided quite a bit. The third series hasn’t helped as much, my jaw clinching is coming back and i’ve had more attacks. I’m due for the fourth series next month and will be trying to get switched to something else. Some people have had very good results with Botox. Good luck, give it a try, you don’t know how it will work for you until you try.

    Hi Allie77, I had Botox for 9 months but unfortunately the it didn’t help. It triggered a migraine as soon as I had it too 🙁
