 Botox Botulinum Toxin Type A

Botulinum toxin (BTX) is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and related species.[1] It prevents the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from axon endings at the neuromuscular junction and thus causes flaccid paralysis. Infection with the bacterium causes the disease botulism. The toxin is also used commercially in medicine, cosmetics and research. Botulinum is the most acutely lethal toxin known, with an estimated human median lethal...
Botox/xarelto

Are there any side effects when getting the two together other than a risk of brusing and bleeding? ## I have posted the same question. Did you have botox while taking xyralto? If so how did it go? ## According to the University of Maryland's drug interaction tool, there are no interactions listed between Botox and Xarelto. This is not to say that no interactions exist, but based on their research it seems to me that this is not a concern. However, I would still encourage you to talk with your doctor just to get a second opinion. I'd also imagine that it may be particularly difficult to make proper discernment between each individual drug's possible side effects vs that of an interaction between the two substances... ...

Xyralto and Botox

Is it safe to have Botox injections while on Xyralto? Has anyone had any experience with Botox while taking Xyralto? ## Since Xarelto can increase your risk of dangerous bleeding, it is very doubtful if it is safe for you to have such a procedure. Other side effects, as listed by the FDA, may also include nausea, dizziness, headache, and easy bruising. It would be best to speak to your doctor, because before having procedures like this, you will most likely need to stop taking it for a few days. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I received Botox a couple weeks ago with no problem whatsoever. Not even a needlestick bruise ...

Botox and migraines

I have chronic migraines,7/24/365. This condition is kept to a manageable level by Lyricaand Effexor. However, both of these drugs have been causing serious side effects to, like short term memory problems, shortness of breath, and more. I am very sensitive to drugs in general, and have tried other meds with little success. Botox has been suggested as an alternative . Has anyone had e perience with Botox or any other med which would be better? Thanks! ## The most likely culprit in this case is Lyrica, since it is an anticonvulsant that can also help with other conditions, the FDA does warn that it can cause memory issues, dry mouth, dizziness, mood changes, and weight changes. However, Botox can also cause side effects, such as administration site reactions, swelling, redness, and atrop... ...

Botox for eye twitching

Has anyone had Botox injections for eye twiching? I have and they did not use numbing while injecting into my eye lids and surrounding eyes. I was wondering why they can not numb the area? ## I have. I don't know why they can use anything to numb it. But the pain is worth making the eye twitch stop. I'd tried everything: calcium, magnesium, potassium, saw a neurologist. Only the shots worked. ## The doctor told me that numbing would hurt worse than the shot. So I just pinch myself and don't look. I've had to get the shots every 5. -6 months for a year and a half because the eye twitch comes back. We are hoping eventually the muscle will stop on it's own. I took topirimate for a few months at a low dose a couple years ago. Then I stopped ## I don't know if my insu... ...

Are people taking Emend who do not have cancer?

Hi, I have severe gastroparesis for 5 years now. I’ve been through tubes, pics, ports, pyloroplasty and Botox. I asked my dr if I could try emend and she gave the okand the script. I have to say, emend plus zofran was the best anti nausea and barfing control that I’ve ever had! I was so happy! But, it’s $20 for 3 pills!! I can’t afford this because of all my other meds as well. Could I get it in IV form and administer it to myself with my drs approval? Also if you get it for Iv, do you get more than 3 days worth at a time? Or more pills for the high copays? Thank you so much! Wendy ## it is used to treat severe forms of nausea, so yes, it can be taken by people who do not have cancer. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, drowsin... ...

sickle cell anemia needs new doctor

I am living with sickle cell anemia. My doctor for the last 10 years has prescribed me with oxycontin. Now my doctor is changing fields and will ne doing botox treatments and he will not write out anymore prescriptions. Does anyone know of a new doctor I can get my medication from in Las Vegas, Nevada? I do not abuse them but I do need them for server pain I have in my bones. Please help!! ## Have you tried asking them if they have a doctor they can recommend for you? In most situations of this type, doctors will look for someone else too take over their patients, rather than leave them out in the cold. Otherwise, have you considered trying a pain management specialist? That might be your other best option, since they are specially trained in dealing with this type of health problem. ...

Xartemis did well by me

I have been in chronic pain for many years since childhood. I am hearing impaired and suffered ear pain for as long as I could remember. I have Meniere Disease. I have migraines so severe I was hospitalized and went through every medication for migraines, luckily Botox was FDA approved for effective treatment for migraines. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, which is common for those who have suffered chronic pain and it is not a "pretend" disease. For fibromyalgia, I have tried tried lyrica, cymbalta, and savella which caused severe allergic reactions. I was up to 4,800 mg of neurontin (gabapentin), which was way above recommended dose and needed to be hospitalized to wean me off this drug. In 2015, I was prescribed Xartemis and found it so beneficial in controlling my pain for se ...

Hi, ive been taking rispond for about the last ten years after changing from risperidal which i took for 4 years or so. I've more or less gotten used to the side effects but about three years ago I was diagnosed with FOCAL DYSTONIA.

I'm sorry about my spelling and grammer mistakes - English isnt my mother ton... ...

stadol

Are there any doctors in east texas that aren't afraid to prescribe Stadol NS 3-4 bottles per month for Migraine rescue therapy. Many cite rebound. I've never had a problem with that. Other's say they are limited by the new laws, however I've learned this is not true. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am getting Botox treatments to reduce the number of headaches, and am on Imitrex (which works if I catch the migraine early enough, and Topomax. ## No, there are new regulations that restrict what general practitioners and surgeons can prescribe, why they can prescribe it, how long they can prescribe it and how much they can prescribe. And the limits on how much they can prescribe also apply to pain management specialists and other specialists, they can only prescrib... ...

need a pain specialist not an addiction who can prescribe subutex bupenorphine for my chronic boulder county co

I've changed healthcare plans (I receive disability because of chronic degenerative disc disease and spinal arthritis, both of which cause chronic pain). I need to find a PAIN SPECIALIST, not an addiction clinic, who will continue my 12mg/day buprenorphine prescription as well as give me botox IV's in my neck for muscle spasms (caused by 5 fusions that have forced my cervical spine straight). When I search the web for physicians in Boulder County, CO, who can prescribe buprenorphine, all of the listings are for addiction specialists and clinics! What is this mindset among physicians that all patients who need buprenorphine prescriptions are drug addicts? Is there a directory on the manufacturer's site that provides the names of ALL physicians who can prescribe buprenorphine?... ...

I am getting Botox treatments to reduce the number of headaches, and am on Imitrex (which works if I catch the migraine early enough, and Topomax. I would be willing to travel pretty much anywhere within a 6 hour radius of Tyler.

It's that or go to the hospital, which as many of you know isn't always possibl... ...
