A variety of injections are used to treat headaches. Migraine sufferers might obtain a Toridol pain medication shot in the emergency department for a severe headache. Botox injections are thought to help relax muscles among other effects. A more recent development is the use of calcitonin gene–related peptide, or CGRP injections for migraines.

Costs and risks for these therapies can be high, and vary widely, as does their effectiveness. Accordingly we are unable to provide ratings for these treatments, and recommend you discuss these options with your physician.
