Does Botox have the same side effect as antidepressants? I'm 35 and look old.

Week after treatment and I have badass tension headache, eye pain, dizziness, anxiety. I suffered Panic disorder for 15 years and botox feels just like the meds to treat anxiety disordrrs. I look great but im wondering if I am om to take another does when thid one wears off. Does this feeling get better? Has this been reported?

There have been studies which showed that in patients with depression, their levels of depression improved after Botox injections. And of course when one looks better one feels better....
Good Luck

I have not had any patients report Botox side effects that were similar to those of antidepressants.  I would recommend contacting the company that makes Botox (Allergan) and checking with them.  They keep a record of all side effects that patients have reported and should be able to answer your question.
