Re: Botox for migraine and chemo

Hello Jackie44


Thanks for posting.


Migraines can really impact on someone’s quality of life so its understandable you are concerned about stopping the Botox you have to manage these. It’s really not possible for us to say of its ok for you to continue, if you have chemotherapy, you would need to check this out with your treatment team.


Perhaps you could leave a message for your breast care nurse to let her know you’d like discuss this.


Do call our free, confidential Helpline if you have any further questions. The number is 0808 800 6000.

Botox for migraine and chemo

Hi I am waiting to find out if I’m having chemo or hormone treatment (on Optima Trial).  I have botox in my head and neck every 3 months to help chronic migraine.  Can I keep having Botox if I have chemo?  I went from 20-24 migraines a month to 6-8 due to Botox and the thought of not having it scares me almost as much as chemo.  
thank you
