Botox is commonly used to turn back the hands of time by smoothing out wrinkle lines on aging foreheads and tired puffy eyes. But who knew Botox could be used to relieve migraines, treat neck spasms, eye muscle disorders, and hyper underarm sweating?
Reports confirm that Allergan Inc., one of the leading manufacturers of Botox, was approved by the Food and Drug Administration to use the injection as a treatment for migraines.
According to business analysts, Allergan will experience record revenue and earnings growth. According to Businessweek, the new uses of Botox could earn Allergan up to an additional $1 billion.
On Friday, the FDA approved Botox specifically for patients experiencing 15 or more days of migraine headaches per month. According to reports, nearly 3.2 million people in the U.S. experience chronic migraines. Seems the new upside of these folk’s gruesome headaches will be younger looking skin.
In recent years, Allergan’s Botox has been approved for the additional uses for neck spasms, eye muscle disorders, and hyper underarm sweating. Recent additional treatments for Botox are spasms in the elbows, wrists and fingers. Botox is also a highly used off-label treatment for movement disorders like cerebral palsy.
Wow! What do you think of the additional uses of Botox? Is this really safe? Sound off!
