Newsweek -- Read it today !


Posted by MaryNY , May 07,2002,10:48   Archive
The cover story on Newsweek today is about Botox. Cosmetic applications, of course, but it does mention medical uses. I'm still digesting my opinion, but it talks quite a bit about medical conditions, more than we've heard before, and is, overall, a good article. For the publicity, if nothing else!

I'm not sure you can access it by clicking on the site above, but you can type it in, and hit "go". Mary

Mary, This is a good article and they actually do say the word blepharospasm! I tried to look up something on the evolution of the drug but I'm not sure of my modem speed.

Interesting article - with all the comparisons with Viagra as a wonder drug and my recent experience with Viagra it would make an interesting story on the similarities between the two drugs in the treatment of blepharospasm.

Well do you know of any others who are using it as well as yourself? There aren't many men on this board, you know.

Hey, give me a sample pack and I'll try it. I might want to warn the wife though!

I read the article. At first I was a little irritated that people consider it a primarily a cosmetic drug for people who want to look good while we just want to look. I especially am concerned with this perception since I've had to fight the insurance company several times that I need Botox for medical not cosmetic reasons. I also received the BEB newsletter today. There are a couple of articles about why the popularity of Botox is a good thing. I changed my mind. Overall there is good that will come out of it.

Tracy-I received my newsletter today, and also read the article by Dr. Anderson about how the cosmetic use of Botox may work to our advantage. It's a good explanation, and I'm beginning to think along those lines, too, altho I still can't understand why anyone would have it for cosmetic reasons! The vanity! or desperation to keep your job in some cases, I guess. It's a sad, sad world! I also received an e-mail from the dystonia board, asking for everyone to write to Newsweek. (I had already written to them. In fact, I had written a question to the "chat room: on Wednesday, which was posted there.)
