FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Nov. 21, 2012 - A lot of people know that the main use of Botox is to treat aging signs like wrinkles in some areas of the face. However, a lot of doctors have found out about the other uses of this solution and these other uses prove to be more successful. That’s the reason why they call it the “miracle drug”. The latest came out with a bang. According to a certain group of researchers have discovered and reported that Botox are really effective anticholinergic medication which is used as a treatment for urinary incontinence especially among women.

Anticholinergic medications are effective in decreasing the contraction of the bladder by targeting the bladder muscle. However, these medications always carry unpleasant side effects such as xerostomia or dry mouth, constipation and dry eyes.

To test the effectiveness of Botox for alternative treatment of such, the researchers contacted a group of around 250 women at average age of 58. They then made a comparison of women who received injections and those who are taking the medications orally. Towards the end of their research, they found out that those who had Botox were actually cured just six months after they began their treatment compared to those who took anti-cholinergic medications. Now, looking at the side effects, Botox medications also had their own set of them like incomplete bladder emptying and infections.

Dr. Susan Meikle from the National Institute of Health says, "This is the first study to compare the effectiveness of Botox treatments to oral medication, previously, Botox was reserved for women who had tried oral medications, but found them ineffective. Because we included some women who had not been treated with oral medication before, these results suggest that Botox could be discussed as an option for the first line treatment."

“I can’t believe that Botox already has reached its top and yet it still continues to bloom on other fields for treatment,” says Dr. J from http://drjdallasplasticsurgeon.com/. “As long as they keep those side effects lower it’ll always be good.”

The Physician Coalition for Injectable Safety says that Botox was approved by the FDA for treatment of eyebrow problems and years later, was also permitted to be used treatment to excessive sweating. We just have to wait for the approval of this new way of using the cosmetic injectable.
