BOTOX web site/Approved Uses


Posted by Dee in OR , Feb 18,2002,12:27   Archive
If you go to the BOTOX web page and click on Consumer Connection in the left hand column, it takes you to a page where the selections are then "Resources", "Reimbursement", "BOTOX FAQ", "Approved Uses" and "Prescribing Information". You can click on any one of these selections EXCEPT "Approved Uses". I wonder why?

Dee, I went to the BOTOX web page- and on the left - under CONSUMER CONNECTION column - I clicked on Approved Uses and it brought me to a page which read -BOTOX is currently approved for the following: Blepharospasm, Strabismus(??) and Cervical Dystonia.

Strabismus is cross-eyedness or cock-eyedness, caused by failure of the eye muscles to respond properly. Botox can be used to weaken the muscles so the eyes will line up properly.

I have a form of strabimus _caused_ by Botox: for several weeks after my shots I have normal vision up to about 30 degrees off center, but when I look off center more than 30 deg., I get double images. It's not a serious problem, just a minor nuisance.

I got into the link ok. Botox was first used for strabismus by a Dr. Scott in the U.S.A. and, finding that it worked on the muscles so well, the doctors began using for other problems, i.e., beb and cd, etc.

Nancy,

Maybe it's my server? It wouldn't work for me. Thanks.
