Drugs & Devices > Botox

Botox is a protein injected underneath skin in order to reduce or smooth out lines and wrinkles on the face. Botox paralyzes or relaxes facial muscles, giving the recipient a sparkling, smooth facial look. In addition to this, Botox is a proven treatment for muscle spasms, cervical dystonia, excessive blinking, crossed eyes, and excessive sweating and muscle stiffness caused by stroke and cerebral palsy. This is an off-label use of the drug.

Problems Associated with Botox

More than half a million Americans use Botox to smooth out facial wrinkles and ease muscle disorders. The drug has been used for 20 years and is approved in many countries. Botox, Botox Cosmetic and Myobloc contain botulinum toxin. Many severe reactions occurred in children treated for limb spasticity associated with cerebral palsy. The most serious cases included hospitalization and death, and occurred mostly in children treated for cerebral palsy-associated limb spasticity.

Because of several side effects, the consumer advocacy group asked to strengthen warnings on the product’s labels. According to an analysis conducted by Public Citizen of FDA, the Botox, Botox Cosmetic and Myobloc had reported 180 U.S. cases of people developing severe conditions after receiving injections, including 16 deaths (between Nov. 1, 1997, and Dec. 31, 2006).
