The botox worked on the wrinkles, but I have had dreadful insomnia since I had the botox treatments It has been so extreme I did not sleep at all for five whole nights. I cannot link it to anything else. I only hope and pray this does not continue much longer. The sleep deprivation is making it very difficult for me to do my job. I am a teacher!

Comment:
I had Botox injected above and between my eyebrows 1 week ago and it has been a total nightmare. Within 24 hours I started to have some of the worst flu-like symptoms I have ever had (including headache, malaise,fever, neck pain, nausea and anorexia).

Comment:
i went to a spa to get botox treatment for my wrinkle between my eyes, after 7 days i noticed my right eyelid was drooping and there is nothing they can do about it. i have to wait for the botox starts to fade for my eyelid to get back to normal. i am very dissatified with this problem. The brochure that was given to me said that eyelid drooping is very rare but is considered a sideeffect.
