    It is about 30 injections in your forehead, temples, back of your neck and back. It is very costly so if you don’t live somewhere with universal healthcare check to make sure your insurance covers it.   The injection in your back can be very painful also. I had trouble with pain from that many months afterwards.

    Hi,

    If you live in UK its free on the NHS, I know this because I have Botox.

    I have about 15 in forehead, temples neck and back.

    you will be fine, I find it very beneficial.

    Good luck and let us know how you get on.

    I used to have Botox procedures and it worked brilliantly for 8 times. Unfortunately on the 9th it stopped working. It was 31 injections I. And around my head and neck. And yes it did hurt lol. I now have IV DHE which may be another option

      It’s like our migraines learn how to outsmart any drug that might work. I’m in clinical trial right now for CRGP drug coming on market this year supposedly. Many companies are trying to bring it out but this particular one is not working very well for me. They mentioned a study with DHE patch. Are you having side effects at all?

    Hi there I had the.injections every 6hrs for 5 days. I had an anti sickness tablet first then I had the I’ve injections.  It just made me very sleepy for quite a while afterwards. But it has had a fantastic effect on my migraines. I can’t praise it enough. I had the course a year last December and it is just wearing off. I have still had to take my meds Epilum and indomethocin but at a lower dose. I have now had to up my dose and start to take my trip tans again so I am hoping that when I see my consultant in April I can have the dhe again. How are you getting on with the CRGP?
