Botox can help with chronic migraines. The FDA approved this alternative use in 2010. If you are getting Botox for migraine prevention, expect roughly 31 injections throughout the neck and head. Typically the effects will last for three months.
It can also help with excessive underarm sweating, also approved by the FDA in 2004. This came about as doctors noticed that the Botox treating facial spasms started sweating less, leading to a large study that concluded people with severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis could experience relief.
For crossed-eyes (or strabismus), which affects nearly 4% of all Americans, Botox can help when eyes don’t line up in the same order/direction.
Severe neck spasms can also be treated through the use of Botox. Though the treatment received approval for use in 2000, it doesn't have the official FDA approval. However, it has proven to be highly effective in treating the disorder known as cervical dystonia (abnormal head positions accompanied by severe neck pain).
