More evidence that Botox relieves not only migraine headaches, but also depression.

The beneficial effect of Botox on mood has been reported for years. I mentioned this in one of my blog posts in 2011. Now, a new and highly scientific study (double-blind, placebo-controlled) which is about to be published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research confirms that Botox relieves depression. The study is described in today’s New York Times.

I have also heard from many of my own patients who receive Botox for chronic migraines that their mood improves, although in their case it could be to a great extent because their headaches improve.
