ALLERGAN

Hi Shirley - Allergan are sure taking their time, aren't they. I checked out some info on the Internet and it definitely said: Do not freeze reconstituted Botox.!!!!

My injections (one week today) do not seem to be kicking in. By now I should be noticing some improvement but very little is happening. I am really thinking now that the frozen Botox is not going to work.

Hi Lyn,
They haven't replied to me yet, either. All their information that I can find also says not to freeze reconstituted botox like Judy said, also. I believe that. No question there. What I want to know is what does it actually do to the botulinum toxin. How does it effect it and to what degree? Totally kills it or unpredictable or lessens it potency? I realize that it shouldn't be done but since some doctors seem to be doing it, I'd like to know the specific effect that it has on it.
I find it hard to believe that a doctor that was giving it for cosmetic reasons primarily or functional reasons would do it for very long if the patients weren't achieving the results that they hoped for. Cosmetic patients are paying out of pocket and they aren't going to be happy with "no results". So, was this just a fluke thing that you received it frozen in a syringe or does he routinely do this and what kind of results does he get?
Questions, Questions.

I'm really sorry that you aren't getting any relief from the botox. If you find that it doesn't work (which may very well happen) I would let the doctor know and also why you feel that it is not working. Question
him about his practice of using frozen reconstituted botox.

Hang in there,
Shirley in AR.

Lyn,
I emailed them the first time a week ago on the 14th and I emailed them again this afternoon with more specific questions. They probably don't like my questions, though.
