Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 weeks ago):

  • I have taken botox a week ago. After that my blood pressure raised. Although I was taking blood pressure pill before it did not affect anymore and my blood pressure raised to 150/100 sometimes 160/100. I am consulting my doctor right now to take multiple blood pressure pills in or to lower my blood pressure.

    I am experiencing similar symptoms 6 weeks after injections. I had 30 units to treat the 11 only. Symptoms of eye pain started 3 days later. Also experiencing overall tiredness and anxiety attacks! Wondering if your symptoms have subsided at all and where did you have the injections and how much?

    I never had hyperthyroidism at all, and the last time I had a test for that , was 3 months ago, 1 week after injecting botox for the third time with a new doctor, I do not know what he used and how he did it, I had aweful symptoms , sever headaches, pain in the eyes, sore throat, difficulty breathing sometimes, being moody, having too dry skin, itchy body, anxiety attacks which leaded me to see a doctor. We had all type of blood test to see what's going on, and my TSH which always was around 1.80-2 had dropped to 0.21 which is amazingly unbelievable for me.
    Anyways that's my idea that botox can cause that, since it happened to have over active thyroid within a week or so.
