How long ago did you get the Botox injection?
Was this the first time that you received a Botox injection for the headaches?

I got the injection on 9/8 This was the first time I received an Botox injection for the headaches
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

Ok, thank you for the response. Botox injections take at least 3 to 4 days to start to work and some patients may not notice any effect for a week. The good news is that Botox injections last for 3 to 4 months.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
