Long lasting headaches and Botox injections - is this a reaction?

Is it common for headaches to last up to a month after Botox injections? Should I reconsider getting them again or will this side effect wear off the ore often I have the injections?

Hi user55555:

I have done thousands and thousands of Botox injections and many of those were for people with poorly controlled migraines.  It almost always works great for that.   I have had two people, who like you, had headaches that lasted for a month.  It might be worthwhile to try Botox or maybe Dysport again to see if it was just an unusual reaction but if you get the headaches again, I would stay away from neurotoxins.
