What is Chronic Migraine?

Chronic Migraine is 15 or more headache days each month, with migraine on at least 8 of those days, and 4 hours or more of headache per headache day.

If you are currently taking migraine treatment, think back to before you started it. If you previously had 15 or more headache or migraine days a month in any 3-month period, you could still have Chronic Migraine.

Chronic Migraine: The Difference

Chronic Migraine is different from episodic migraine. With Chronic Migraine:

  • You have 15 or more headache days per month (at least 8 associated with migraine)
  • Headaches last longer
  • Pain is often more severe

Experts recommend treating Chronic Migraine with preventive medication – medicine that is used before a headache or migraine even starts.

  • Preventive medication is used before a headache or migraine even starts
  • Preventive medication is different from acute treatments, which are taken once a headache or migraine has already started
  • BOTOX® is a preventive treatment for Chronic Migraine
