Were you looking for information on Botox? Bottox is a common misspelling of Botox.
Botox® is an injectable drug used to treat a variety of conditions, from wrinkles and frown lines on the forehead to severe underarm sweating to crossed eyes. 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, which causes them to relax. Botox is only available by prescription. Possible side effects of the drug include droopy eyelids, difficulty swallowing, and neck pain.
