Botox Approved for Migraine Headaches in the United States

On October 15, 2010, the FDA approved botox for use in migraine headaches. It is hoped that eventually, this procedure will soon be covered by most health insurance companies rather than the few who do so now.

Dr. Chang has been performing botox injections for migraine headaches since 2005 along with for wrinkles, spasmodic dysphonia, cervical dystonias, oral-mandibular dystonias, etc.
