Sick after Botox injection for migraines

Posted , 3 users are following.


I had botox injections last week to help my migraines and 2 days after the injections have been waking up with flu like symptoms, very weak and fatigued, blurry vision and pressure in my eyes and forehead also sick to my stomach. These symptoms have been going on for a week now. Has anyone experienced symptoms like these and if so how long did they last? Also, does anyone know if these are symptoms of botox posioning?

    Dear Johnette, I would have hoped your Dr. told you that Botox is a neuro-toxin, used in small doses for cosmetic procedures & now as a treatment for migraines, that has a huge list of possible side effects...because it stays in your system an extended period, side effects can last for weeks, certain side effects are serious...if you have ANY effects that concern you go to your ER, I tried to include a URL address that classifies symptoms, if it doesnt work, PLS SEARCH ONLINE FOR: BOTOX FOR MIGRAINES SIDE EFFECTS, your symptoms sound EXACTLY like the list but, you need to keep a close eye out for CERTAIN symptoms that are SERIOUS...Best Wishes & Take Care...pls do the search & look up the SIDE EFFECTS
