Botox side effects

Botox injections are commonly performed and generally safe. Just like any other medical procedure, Botox is not without its share of side effects.  The side effects are not life-threatening but they can affect your quality of life. If Botox side effects occur, they're usually temporary starting within the first days of injection, but may persist for several months.

Potential complications occur when too much toxin is injected or when the right amount is injected into the wrong muscle. Some people cannot take the Botox injection. For instance, people with cardiovascular or neuromuscular disease should not undergo Botox treatment. Botulinum toxin should not be prescribed to pregnant women and nursing mothers because the effects of the Botox on the fetus and nursing baby have not yet been determined.
Before using Botox injections, you should be aware of potential side effects. Many Botox side effects occur as a result of drug interactions. It is important to tell your doctor if you are taking any medication.There are also a number of medicines that may interact with botox such as :

    Can uterine fibroids cause weight gain?
    I have a follow up appt with my doctor on Friday to determine if he found uterine fibroids. I just wanted to know if weight gain is a side effect. I’ve noticed in the past year I have had some weight gain but I have not changed any part of my lifestyle including my diet. If anything I eat a little less and healthier. Does anyone know about this?

    • Lidybeff says:

      I think the fibroids in themselves can sometimes get quite large and heavy. It might also pay to get your ovaries investigated for Poly-cystic Ovary Syndrome, which can cause weight gain.

    What are the available medicine that could dissolve fibroids?
    On May 1, 2006 my transvaginal scan result shows that i have thickened endometrium and multiple uterine fibroids such as Posterior subserosal – 2.8×3.2 cm, Fundal 3.8×2.5 cm, anterior subserosal 1.8×1.5 cm, posterior myometrial 2.1×1.9 cm. The endometrium is thickened & heterogeneous & measures 18 mm. Both ovaries are normal in size. There is no evidence of any adnexal mass lesion. There is no free fluid in the POD.

    43 years old asian with a 19 yr old son (normal delivery). Working as an office administrator. No history of any problems in my reproduction system and neither have I suffered from menstrual problems. I have had D&C in Feb. 17 because of menorrhagia. Had my period in March 25 then suffered from heavy bleeding again.

    Gyne advised hysterectomy but i would like to seek other alternative. I read about the medicine Vitalzym. Is is effective.Any side-effects? Any other medicine alternative that I could take. What are the side effects of hysterectomy?

    YAZ birth control pills, side effects, NSAIDS?
    Hello, I am 39, no kids and am now about to try Yaz as my third BC formula in an attempt to reduce cramping & heavy periods due to uterine fibroids. Tried and discontinued Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo and Allesse generic due to side effects. But my periods are just too painful, so I’m trying one more method. Yaz is my last, best hope! I am encouraged by the ladies who seem to report less stomach upset, fatigue, and general yuckiness than with regular BCs. Please share your Yaz experiences with me. Also, I notice on the package insert that “daily” use of NSAIDS like Advil is not advised due to possible raising of potassium levels. Can I take Advil at all… for example, during my period? (Although now my period won’t be as painful… right?) Thanks

    • daisy says:

      Yaz is not the same as Yasmin…
      I’m on yaz right now after unsuccessfully trying generic alesse…and I’m so tired and just drag around and nauseous too. I’m on my 2nd week, but hoping it gets better.

      I read the same thing about the NSAID’s; I thought it may be okay if you only take a few doses. I had a doctor tell me that NSAIDs build up in your system so I figured that would be the difference between daily use and occasional use.

      I have endometriosis and trying the pill to alleviate symptoms.

      Sorry i don’t have an answer. I just want something to work; it’s frustrating to have to sit day after day wondering if it’s going to work and get relief.

    Leukemia and Uterine Fibroids?
    I usually don’t like asking health questions on the net, but I am trying to do research and this situation is very hard to find. My mother just found out she has uterine fibroids that are very large. I know that a lot of women have these, but my mom also has leukemia. This leaves out the option for surgery since she can’t be around germs in a hospital (due to low immunity.) The doctors are speaking to each other right now about the option of taking a medicine for the fibroids along with the chemo pill, Gleevec. Are there any concerns or side effects this will have? Please only give serious responses, I am very concerned. Thank you.

    • MelB says:

      Check out the drug Lupron and Femara. I have HUGE uterine fibroids…along with uterine sarcoma unfortunately. I am on chemo to shrink the tumors and also Lupron (shot every 3 months) to sort of shut down the whole area. Of course only her Dr. could say if this is appropriate for your mom, but it’s worth looking into. Good luck.

      Dear I really sympathize with you! I had a uterine fibroid for YEARS before I actually got to have anything done about it! Thank GOD I had a hysterectomy last April!! It really is the ONLY cure I feel for the fibroids because any and everything else is just experimental and they tend to come back.. GOOD LUCK with this trust me I know how the bleeding and the swelling and all that is.. when they took out my tumor it was the size of a BASKETBALL! I was amazed but then relieved when it was all over with! I had to decide on children * which wasn’t possible anyway the fibroids had really messed up my insides* or being healthy and I am TOTALLY healthy now THANK GOD! I pray the Zoladex helps you, but be careful you have to study up on things you put in your body I blame DepoProvera for my tumors..anyways take care!
