Botox Injection Risks from Mayo Clinic

Botox Injection Risks
By Mayo Clinic staff; http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/botox/MY00078/DSECTION=risks

“Botox injections are relatively safe when performed by an experienced doctor. The most common side effects include swelling or bruising at the injection site, headache or flu-like symptoms. If the injections aren’t placed correctly, the medication may spread into adjacent tissues and cause problems such as:

Eyelid droop
Cockeyed eyebrows
Crooked smile
Dry eye or excessive tearing
Although very unlikely, there is a possibility that the effect of botulinum toxin may spread to other parts of the body and cause botulism-like signs and symptoms. Call your doctor right away if you notice any of these effects hours to weeks after receiving Botox:

Muscle weakness all over the body
Vision problems
Trouble speaking or swallowing
Trouble breathing
Loss of bladder control
Doctors generally recommend against using Botox when you’re pregnant or breast-feeding, since the effects on the baby aren’t known.”
