Eyelash enhancement Drug Discussion continues

Posted Dec 06 2008 11:49am

In a time whereby we are looking at cures for cancer and other related drugs, items such as this I guess still need consideration too for the image safe use of a drug for those long lustrous eye lashes.  I guess the old standby product called “mascara” that does the same thing with applying to one’s eyelashes could maybe be replaced some day?  The concern here is for the off label use and perhaps overdose of the drug if someone were to perhaps assume that if one dose a day works well, what would 4 doses do?  The jury at the FDA is still blinking over this one and are there any side effects found yet as being researched with pretty much all drugs on the market today?  BD  

Reporting from Washington -- A panel of government experts said Friday that a glaucoma drug from Allergan Inc. appeared to be a safe and effective way to make eyelashes longer and fuller. Irvine-based Allergan, which makes Botox anti-wrinkle injections, has asked the Food and Drug Administration to approve its Lumigan formula to enhance eyelashes for patients 18 and older.
