Is Botox Injection In People With Epilepsy Dangerous?

Is Botox Injection In People With Epilepsy Dangerous?

Im learning to inject botox into my jaw as a beautification. I then read briefly that Botox can treat epilepsy. Has anyone tried it yet? And if Botox could treat epilepsy, where would it be injected?
