Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Do botox injections for migraines possibly cause loss of effectiveness of novacaines numbing ability ?
    I received the Botox injections for migraine prevention and then within the following couple of days, I had some dental work done for a new crown. This is the first time in my life that the dentist could not effectively numb my gums . It took about 8 to 10 injections over an hour before I was finally feeling numb. My question is : does the Botox cause this problem, ie, is the botox contraindicated for Novocain ? I look forward to an educated response. Thanks someone !Snutch
  • Can you have botox injections in face when taking votrient
    I would like to know if anyone taking Votrient has had cosmetic Botox injections. If so have you had any reaction?
  • Has anyone experienced getting perioral dermatitis after botox injections?
    Approx. 1 year ago perioral dermatitis on my face occured.
    My skin was always very nice and quite resistant.
    Never suffered from eczema, acne or anything like that.
    When I tried to figure out the reason, the only thing, which comes on my mind is, I had had botox injections about month before my dermatitis started. Has anyone experienced sth similar? Thanks Adela
  • I am on propranolol 10mg 3tad i now have a stomach bug and have been prescribed vancomycin, is it safe to take both together
    I have a very bad stomach bug, can this be caused by use propranolol, and is it safe and will the vancomycin work, while i am taken propranolol
  • Can botox for migraines cause sleep apnea?
    I had botox injections for non-stop migraines on Sept, 3rd. Last night(3 weeks later) my throat closed off completely while sleeping at least 3 times. This is the first round of botox, but my face swelled and I had itching sensations inside my nose and chest happened approx. 2 hours after the injections. It feels like there is a flap in my throat that is closing off my air and I have to cough and gasp to get air. Anybody else have this problem?
    The doctor only injected the side of my head that the migraines are occurring, he put 2 or 3 injections in the back of my head, close to the bottom of head.
    The doctor thinks it is unrelated to the injections, but why is it happening now and not any time before the injections?

  • Botox & gi bleed 5 weeks after
    had Botox for my stroke in my leg and ankle and 5 wks. later had a severe GI Bleed.This happened twice.
  • Melatonin reduces essential tremor of the hand
    After taking Melatonin 1mg as a sleep aid for several nights, I noticed that my essential tremor of the hand was showing improvement. Within a week the tremor was almost unnoticeable, and I could print and write neatly, even when slightly stressed at work. I haven't seen this response reported anywhere else; have other people noticed this effect?
  • Botox and dry eye pain
    I have severe dry eye, very painful at night, with gritty feeling 75% of the day. Drops such as gels, liquids, were used (Muro 128, genteal). Then switched to preservative free drops which have helped by 90%.

    There is research about the injection of botox into crows feet and causing dry eye. This may be reversible and I am waiting to see whether the problem subsides and my condition returns to normal. I also have the feeling that my lids have slackened and are not fitting together closely. This is another effect of botox around the eye socket, in crows feet and centrally under the lower lid.

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • Had Botox for the first time July 2012. Noticed triangular dents 3 days later (they have never disappeared) face appears flat (all volume gone). Couldnt raise my eyebrows for at least 9 months, had to manually lift my brow to put mascara on. Cheek droop (but recovered mostly from that now) eyes looked sunken for about 1.5 yrs, (right eye still looks sunken) hollow caved in temple area (guessing that's from having my forehead injected) had dry eyes for roughly a 1yr, and strangely I still get shooting pains every now and then around my eyes. My eyes look like an old ladies eyes now, they look empty and hollow, skin looks like orange peel (Lower lids). Can feel my face pulling when I make certain expressions (like its so tight in some areas) left side of face is getting better, right side is still very droopy, skin laxity, pulls in funny directions when making expressions.
