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
- 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?
- What can you do about the heat intolerance with crps? i'm always way too warm.
I am always way too warm. My family is freezing! I currently have a pain stimulator. I'm taking medications mainly antidepressants and Neurontin. I need guidance, is there a medication that might help?

- 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.
- Hair loss with miralax
My hair started thinning out probably within a few weeks of starting Miralax on a daily basis. I continued taking it for approximately 6 months never thinking it was the Miralax. It being the only new drug I had been on, I looked on-line and immediately stopped taking it after seeing the side effects of hair loss approximately 3 days ago. So I have no long-term recovery to report as far as return of hair growth. I am keeping my fingers crossed and am already on vitamin supplements...B complex, multi vit, calcium and d. I did start on vit E in hopes that would help.
- 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.

HubbardstonJMF on Feb, 6, 2015:
CDC emailed me this back in 2013. Isoniazid INGH causes a number of recognized adverse effects; however, RSD complex regional pain syndrome has not been recognized as an adverse effect of isoniazid in any the isoniazid treatment trials, which cumulatively have enrolled more than 70,000 patients. The case reports in the literature of complex regional pain syndrome in TB patients do not constitute grounds for warning about a causal relationship.
Joanne on Aug, 17, 2014:
March 2011 I had a positive reading of TB. I went on INH and was on it to July because my liver function enzymes increased a lot. In October 2011, suddenly developed in my right leg down to the foot cellulitis. No bug bite, cut, or any injury on the leg. I just got Cellulitis. November 30 2011, I was injured at work. Broke my foot/didn't show in the xray was broken so worked 40 hrs at the hospital. February 2012 MRI showed that I had to Fractures in the left foot. I went out on workers comp. March 2012 diagnosed with RSD/CRPS. I have found this study helpful but yet disturbing. People should be warned about taking INH. I have written to the CDC and they stated that there is 70,000 cases that they know that people have developed RSD/CRPS due to INH and RIF. Two antibiotics to treat TB.
