Botox Drug Interactions

Aminoglycoside Antibiotics
Taking Botox and an aminoglycoside antibiotic together may increase the nerve-blocking effects of Botox, perhaps increasing your risk of Botox side effects. Talk with your healthcare provider before using these medications together.
RimabotulinumtoxinB (Botulinum Toxin Type B)
It is not known if it is safe to combine botulinum toxin type B and Botox (which is onabotulinumtoxinA, previously known as botulinum toxin type A) or even if they should be taken within several months of each other. Consult your healthcare provider before using these closely related medications together.
Neuromuscular-Blocking Medications
Neuromuscular-blocking medications are commonly used in general anesthesia for surgery or in people requiring a respirator in intensive care units (ICUs). Using a neuromuscular blocker in combination with Botox can increase the nerve-blocking effects of both medications. Check with your healthcare provider before using these medications together.
