- 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?
- 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
- Has anyone besides me have blepharospasm after trigeminal neurology sugery
After Gamma Knife surgery for Trigeminal Neurology(a nerve problem) I later(4 years) was diagnosed with Blepharospasm/Meige Syndrome. Botox injections have been less than effective. Then I recently had Trigeminal Cyber Knife surgery on the other side of my face and still have nerve sensations on the side of my face where I received the original surgery. Could the Trigeminal Nerves be the cause of my Blepharospasm/Meige Syndrome and can the brain stimulation procedure address both?

- 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.
- 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.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
I've been getting Botox injections for 7 years and After some Botox injections I get a high fever, body aches, and a severe soar throat with white patches on my tonsils. Antibiotics clear it up, but in beginning to think I need to start on antibiotics a day before my Botox treatment and continue for a few days, just like u do when u have surgery. Anyone else having this problem?
When I don't get full blown sick I'm always very tired and weak for a few days after a Botox injection, So it's taken me along time to come to the conclusion that I do have a reaction to this stuff.
From this study (1 week ago):
Took steroids for intensely itchy full body rash. Rash did not cease. Last day of prednisone tablets, got nausea sick headache. Second day with black water diaherria, incontinence, can keep no foods in. Will be starting second course prednisone tomorrow. Rash worse than ever.
From this study (6 months 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.
