I got a dysport injection on September 1st, had a little headache when I got home, no big deal. The injection did take effect faster than botox and the results are great... BUT on September 9th I was laying on my couch watching tv when suddenly out of nowhere my throat started to close up, my toungu became swollen, lost my ability to speak, the whole right side of my body went limp and I felt as if I were goig to collapse and die. I went to the emergency room and was given benadryl through an IV, was put on an ekg monitor and I had missed heartbeats and irregular heartbeats and erratic resperation. Was there for 7 hours, this is just the day after and I still feel somewhat like my throat is closed up and have a general feeling of total body weakness. I was told that dysport adverse reactions could take days to weeks to show up. I am lactose intollerant but was not informed that people with allergies to cows milk should NOT get dysport injections. This was the scarriest thing that has ever happened to me and although this reactions is rare it is very real and people should know! The dysport pamphlet does NOT contain a complete list of side effects, please do your reasearch before getting this injection!

My Doctor: name not provided
It is not my doctor's fault that I had this terrible reaction and have had no problems in the past with services provided to me and would recommend his services but I feel I could have been better informed about the possibility of dysport side effects, was just told that it was the same price as botox and was safe.
