Serious Side Effects Associated with Botox
Botox is manufactured by Allergan and was approved by the FDA for cosmetic use in April of 2002. Unfortunately, the drug has been linked to a myriad of side effects as well death since it was originally released in 1989 for therapeutic use in patients over twelve years of age. After 28 deaths were linked to the drug between 1989 and 2003, investigations into Botox revealed that Botox could spread to other areas of the body and cause adverse side effects, such as respiratory failure and death.
Since its introduction to the public in 1989, Botox has been linked to serious side effects in both children and adults. In 2009, the FDA updated warnings on the label, stating that serious side effects were caused by the botulinum toxin, claiming that the entire body is vulnerable to such side effects.
The following side effects are linked to Botox:
- Difficulty swallowing
- Muscle weakness
- Speech disorders
- Breathing difficulties
- Brain damage
- Central nervous system side effects
- Respiratory disorders
- Musculoskeletal problems
- Gastrointestinal side effects
