 3  relax muscles in forehead/cosmetic anxiety--it took me awhile to figure out this is what caused it. At first it was slight, and I dismissed it as being related to stressful situation. But when the situation was over, the anxiety was still there. Wake up with it, go to sleep with it. Drinking alcohol helps somewhat, but One drink with a meal in the evening is my max., so that is not the solution. All day every day I feel like my heart is racing,I am scared of what? Also headache, sinus pain, and gasping, wheezy feeling in chest. You have to dig for the info, but these are all documented side effects of dysport. The Dr.s love to say there's no way it can have a systemic effect. Well, guess what? They said that about nasal steroids, too! I hope it wears off soon. I'd rather look wrinkled than feel anxious and jittery and headachy constantly. I feel about ready to jump out of my skin. F 54 1 days

DYSPORT  (abobotulinumtoxinA):  There are different types of botulinum toxin products (toxin A and B) with different uses (eye problems, muscle stiffness/spasms, migraines, cosmetic, overactive bladder). Different brands of this medication deliver different amounts of medication. Your doctor will choose the correct product for you. Botulinum toxin is used to treat certain eye disorders such as crossed eyes (strabismus) and uncontrolled blinking (blepharospasm), to treat muscle stiffness/spasms or movement disorders (such as cervical dystonia, torticollis), and to reduce the cosmetic appearance of wrinkles. It is also used to prevent headaches in people with very frequent migraines. Botulinum toxin relaxes muscle by blocking the release of a chemical called acetylcholine. Botulinum toxin is also used to treat overactive bladder by patients who do not respond to or who cannot tolerate the side effects of other medications. It helps to reduce leaking of urine, feeling of needing to urinate right away, and frequent trips to the bathroom. It is also used to treat severe underarm sweating and drooling/excess saliva. Botulinum toxin works by blocking the chemicals that turn on the sweat and salivary glands. Botulinum toxin is not a cure, and your symptoms will gradually return as the medication wears off.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
