How long do botox side effects last?

I have had horrible side effects from botox like so many others on here. Anxiety, depression, head ache, insomnia and now awful neck pain. I had the injections two weeks ago. How long is this hell going to last?

Thanks Megan. I'm feeling a bit better. It's almost three weeks now. Thank heavens. I felt so dreadful. However from some comments on here, symptoms sometimes come in waves. I hope that doesn't happen with me and it has gone. Man I felt bad.

I'm so sorry to hear how you are feeling. :( Botox, like any medication, is going to act somewhat differently in each person, so keep in mind while some people have no side effects, others will last for much longer, so only time will tell how long they will last for you. Hopefully they will clear up sooner rather than later!

In the meantime here are some Q&A's that might help:

Did you have flu symptoms after Botox?

Does anyone get respiratory symptoms? Like wheezing, nasal congestion, throat clearing and itchy. Just like an allergy? Trying to get to the bottom of these symptoms that have been going one and off for years! Please help.
