Botox Now Used to Treat Premature Ejaculation

sb10069800d-001

Botox, having reached the old age of 25, is looking to get just a subtle refresher. The company behind the favorite injectable toxin for people of all ages who fear wrinkles hopes to go from mostly cosmetic use to mostly medical, reports The Wall Street Journal, noting that as of last year 54 percent of Botox's sales were from non-cosmetic uses. What does that entail, you inquire? Well, Botox has received (or will soon receive) FDA approval for a whole host of surprising uses like: 

• Chronic migraines.

• Juvenile cerebral palsy.

• Depression.

• Strabismus (crossed eyes).

• Blepharospasm (eyelid spasms).

• Upper-limb spasticity.

• Osteoartritis pain (joint pain).

• Severe underarm sweating.

• Urinary incontinence.

• Overactive bladder.

• Premature ejaculation.

Who knew! Now the next time someone asks you if you had "a little work done," you can tell them, No, it's just a side effect of my premature-ejaculation treatment.
