A consumer advocacy group brought a petition to the FDA after over 180 cases of fluid in the lungs and pneumonia were reported around the country in association with Botox, as well as 18 deaths. From the Associated Press:
“We’re not talking hundreds. It’s a relative handful,” said Dr. Russell Katz, FDA’s neurology chief.
But the agency warned that patients receiving a botulinum toxin
injection for any reason-cosmetic or medical-should be told to seek
immediate care if they suffer symptoms of botulism, including:
difficulty swallowing or breathing, slurred speech, muscle weakness, or
difficulty holding up their head.
“I think people should be aware there’s a potential for this to happen,” Katz said. “People should be on the lookout for it.”
Gay staph and now this. Be careful out there, friends. And if all we’re talking about is a few laugh lines, consider keeping them. They make you look dignified. Unless of course you’re 52 and still shop at Abercrombie and you’d rather die than look old, in which case we say, may the fierce be with you. Hope you don’t die.
