This week’s two-part question about migraine in families and how Botox works for migraine is a fabulous question and one that many migraineurs have, whether they ask it or not. Dr. David Watson, who also works with me on our Ask the Clinician column, lent his expertise to answering this question.
So, without further ado, I give you this week’s question AND the answer - _How Does Botox Work? _ I hope you’ll take the time to follow the link and read it. Once you’ve read it, please click the link at the bottom of the post to leave a comment with any other questions you may have or to discuss the question or answer.
This is just one of the great questions our readers have asked about Migraine disease and other headache disorders here on HealthCentral’s Migraine community. I answer questions in our community question and answer section, and Dr. Watson and I answer other questions in our _Ask the Clinician column _.
Some of the questions apply to many of our readers, and are great topics for discussion. So, we try to bring especially good questions, and their answers, to your attention. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to look at these questions and the answers, then join us in discussion. One of the best things about online communities is the opportunity to share information and experiences.
