The popular anti-wrinkle medication known as Botox has been linked to a number of dangerous botulism symptoms in some users. According to a US government report, some of the cases have been so severe that children who received doses of these drugs to control muscle spasms have even died.

In an official statement released last Friday (Feb. 8) the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says the warnings include Botox, its specific anti-wrinkle version, known as Botox Cosmetic, and its competitor, Myobloc. All of these contain a particular toxin, botulinum, which blocks nerve impulses, causing them to relax.

So far, the FDA has said that cases involving deaths have been only among young children, who were administered with this component in some severe cases of brain damage. However, they are still investigating whether the effect could be fatal also in men and women who resort to Botox injections and treatments.

Botox is known worldwide for its anti-wrinkle capacity, as they paralyze the muscles of the face. But perhaps now with the latest discoveries, we will think twice before turning to it. What do you think?
