Third round of Botox

Post  micheletroyer on Fri Oct 31, 2014 8:48 am

Had my third round of Botox early this morning.  As usual, it was painful, especially in the forehead, but I made it through.

Dr.  suggested Trazadone for my insomnia.

Also asked about Cefaly, and he said it works for about 50% of migraineurs.  Not sure I want to spend $300 on a shot in the dark, but will keep watching for updates on the forum as to how Cefaly is working for you.

Time for a nap - I've been up since 4:30.

Hope you're feeling better, Michele. The study your doctor might be referring to said that almost 50% of the total users in the study returned the Cefaly because it wasn't working for them. But if you read the study closely, you see that it may have not been working for them because they were using it only half the time. Most  of the remaining 50% in the study reported improvement and ordered one for themselves. Here's a link to the study: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24289825

I have posted about Cefaly previously on this forum. It has worked really well for me, although I am having problems with the change of seasons right now. I have to use it twice to feel better, and twice this week, I've had to use a triptan. But I hadn't had a migraine for two weeks prior, and I hadn't had a migraine for 5 weeks prior to that, so I am pretty satisfied with it.

I am not affiliated with Cefaly in any way.
