Were you looking for information on Botox? Botex is a common misspelling of Botox.
Botox® is an injectable medicine used to treat wrinkles, severe underarm sweating, frown lines, and a number of other conditions. The drug is actually a toxin produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria, and it works by decreasing the nerve signals that are sent to muscles, relaxing them. The medication is made by Allergan Pharmaceuticals. There are currently no generic versions available.
Possible side effects of this prescription drug include droopy eyelids, difficulty swallowing, and neck pain. Before receiving an injection, let your healthcare know if you have any allergies (including allergies to any nonprescription drugs or herbal supplements). Also, talk to your healthcare provider if you have difficulty swallowing, heart disease, an infection near the injection site, or any other medical conditions.
