Is Botox a restricted term? Why are ads using it?

I cannot use Botox in my ads and I am an MD but all of these other clinics can get on adwords using the word Botox in their headline.  Search "Botox Atlanta" and see.

Hi there,

As per policy BOTOX is a prescription drug (https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/2430794?hl=en) and can be advertised using AdWords but Google AdWords policies for prescription drugs differ from country to country. As per my search you can't advertise it in Philippines and Singapore.

Please see here what is the policy? https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/176031

Thanks!
