Onabotulinum toxin A is licensed for the treatment of chronic migraine.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence's guidelines on the diagnosis and management of headache endorse onabotulinum toxin A for use in chronic migraine prophylaxis, but maintain that this treatment should be undertaken in a specialist setting.
