Botox side effects

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 :
