NICE recommends botulinum toxin type A as a possible treatment for preventing headaches in some adults with chronic migraine.
Who can have botulinum toxin type A?
You should be able to have botulinum toxin type A if you have chronic migraine (that is, you have headaches on at least 15 days each month, with migraine on at least 8 of these days) and:
• you have already tried at least three different drug
treatments to prevent your chronic migraine headaches,
but these have not worked and
• you are not taking too many painkillers or using them
