FDA Warns Medical Practices About Unauthorized Botox

Filed January 23rd, 2013 admin

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned 350 medical practices they may have received unauthorized, and potentially unsafe, versions of the Botox drug.

The FDA said the unlicensed Botox is being shipped by suppliers owned by a pharmacy called Canada Drugs, myfoxatlanta.com said. Since these batches of the wrinkle fighter have not been regulated, the FDA is warning doctors that it may not be effective, and it could even be harmful.

Botox has gained a reputation as a bit of a wonder-drug. The injectable drug is known for causing wrinkles to disappear from a person’s face in few short days. However, the FDA feels that this version of Botox could be putting patients at risk. In late November, the agency sent out an alert letter to 350 medical practices nationwide, myfoxatlanta.com said. The letter warned the practices that they may have received “unapproved medications, including unapproved versions of Botox,” from one of a number of suppliers owned by Canada Drugs, myfoxatlanta.com said. The letter listed the names and locations of doctors who may have purchased unlicensed Botox.
