*Botox (and other neuromodulators) for depression-why it works and how to inject it. *New Research that shows the “chemical-imbalance-of-serotonin” as the cause of depression is WRONG and how that relates to your Botox practice. *The central effects of Botox *The answer to the following question:
Hi Dr. Runels, I have a 44y/o male with diabetes who came in for a P-Shot® consult. His issue is that after an episode of diabetic ketoacidosis 4 years ago, he can’t maintain an erection. If he uses a penis constrictor, he can maintain the erection. It seems like a problem with the inability to maintain venous pressure. He has seen urology, and they offered no solution. He is asking if the P-shot may help. Thoughts? Thanks,
