Xeomin Injections

People with wrinkles between the eyebrows, neck pain, or eyelid twitching may benefit from Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA). Injections of this drug are given directly into the muscles that are causing the problems. As a type of toxin, Xeomin works to relax the muscles by decreasing the nerve signals to the muscles.
Your dose of Xeomin will depend on the condition being treated, other medical conditions you may have, and how you respond to the drug. Possible side effects may include dry mouth, dry eyes, and difficulty swallowing.
Prior to receiving injections of Xeomin, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medications you are taking. Also, make sure he or she knows if you have any allergies or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
