BOTOX, BOTOX COSMETIC: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Migraine Prevention “Absolutely terrible. Has had no effect or positive impact on preventing my chronic migraines. Awful side effects no one warned me about: extreme hair loss (it falls out in clumps), constant nausea, hot flashes, depression & lack of energy.. just to name a few. I’m 23 and have never felt worse. Highly recommend A DIFFERENT TREATMENT.”

For Migraine Prevention “I had about five partial rounds of Botox. The first 2 helped me go from chronic to frequent episodic, then no benefit for 3 rounds all likely at 100. Took a break and HA worse.Then I had a round from well-known headache/pain clinic and found that I had not been getting standard protocol before. Got about 1/2 my normal headaches so very happy. As that wore off, I went back to the clinic. A different Dr. asked me where the headaches hurt and was trying to customize injections and he also told me he was giving me extra–I assume that means 200 since before I had 150. 2 days after that, I have had migraine just about every day for last 10 days-I knew there were risks but did not realize I could cause more migraine than I had before. Hope this is just the med waiting to kick in but very concerned”

For Overactive Bladder “I have been getting Botox injections for 6 years now. I react differently almost every time. Sometimes it lasts a year or so, and other times only 6 months. I’ve had to use catheters for up to 4 months after, other times not at all. I always end up with infections though but that is normal for me anyways. All I do know is that no matter what, it’s always worth it!!! I will ALWAYS pick any single side effect that happens to me over peeing uncontrollably all over myself! These injections have changed my life and I an truly grateful “

For Overactive Bladder “Best treatment I’ve had. I thought my active life was over. After several years of misery, missing out, avoiding people and feeling unclean, I have got my life back.”

For Overactive Bladder “Three hours in hospital for injection, $2,650.00,doctor bill $249.00. Results: I used to get up 4 1/4 times a night, now it’s 5 or 6, one night 9.The urge to pee is so strong that it leaks before I reach a urinal and I can’t hold it back. Usually the urge to pee is so strong, I hurry to the toilet and nothing comes except pain in my penis. Many times when I do pee it burns. I just can’t wait for the Botox to wear out..”
