Florida doctor gets 3 years for "Botox" poisoning

Posted Jan 26 2006 12:00am

This osteopath injected several people with a botulinum toxin that had not been FDA approved. This story may confuse alot of people as there are several FDA-approved botulinium toxins on the market. The two used in the US are Botox TM (botulinum type A) and Myobloc TM (botulinum type B). There will soon be a third that I believe will be called Dysport TM. I have been using Myobloc for several years. It is FDA approved and safe. I wonder where Dr X here got his drug and what exactly it was. It was certainly not Myobloc.

Best Regards,

John Di Saia MD

P.S. The “TM” s are there because I got a silly letter from the Allergan people. They are pretty ticked off that I am not using their drug. If their attitude and price were a little better, I might be.
