So to begin with they only approve it if you have at least 15 migraines monthly. That's a lot of headaches and it must suck to have to endure them.
But the funniest part in their ads is the following statement:
"BOTOX® prevents on average 8 to 9 headache days and migraine/probable migraine days a month (versus 6 to 7 for placebo)."
Read that a few times and let it sink in. If you're a migraine sufferer and do nothing but take a sugar pill you will cure 6-7 migraines (or potential migraines) each month.
But if you inject yourself with the poison of a highly toxic fish, you'll spare yourself 8-9 migraines monthly.
For those who learned common core math, let me save you two pages of steps for the simple arithmetic involved. Botox alleviates maybe 2 migraines more than nothing at all.
Here's an idea. Take up yoga, exercise, drink lots of water. You can be assured you'll have better results from any of those over the toxic injections of Botox.
Just a thought...
