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 too often.
