  • 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?
  • Can botox cause heart murmors
    I have started having heart flutters I may have had these befor I started using botox I also have underactive tyroids and i am on 25mg of tyroxine

  • 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.

    Sammy, I'm a white 45 male; just wanted to agree on that Klonopin remark. When I was 21 I had my second kidney transplant which was a BAD issue all together, at any rate the hospital did not include my medications taken at home after my surgery. I went thru the worst hallucinations and jerking and seizures you could ever possibly imagine. This went on for almost 3 1/2 weeks before we decided to have me taken OUT of the hospital and relocated before they ended up taking my life. Then the whole staff of paychology including the chief of psychiatry cane in my room to see what they could do, Finallu. During one of my few moments of clarity the C.O.F after blaming me if talking "drugs" prior to my transplant listened to my word of telling him the meds I was on before being admitted. After asking when was the last time I had received my Klonopin and me not knowing, he then reviewed the charts, and didn't see me receiving this med once. He stormed out of the room of about 9 docs and came back in with two Klonopin; for the first time in almost 4 weeks and after three surgeries the first 72 hours I was hospitalized, I was sleeping like a baby, for about 49 hours with NO MORE hallucinations, or seizures or jerking! I finally got out of there without a kidney since that kidney was supposed to go to another man named the same as I in a different city! I do take Xanax and probably always will. The half life on Klonopin is much different hence one if its dangers, Nevwr Ever stop this drug cold! I've been on dialysis 25 1/2 years now and suffered from intense skin cancers, but have fought and done all I can do to live a normal as possible life, working full time except when I'm in yet another surgery, over 32 general anesthetic procedures since 1987. I was the youngest boy-man to ever be on the USA soccer team ready to play in the Korea 1988 Olympics. What a change in life.....
    All the Best,
    K. Peters
