AbobotulinumtoxinA Dosage

General Information on Your Dose of AbobotulinumtoxinA

Considerations for people taking abobotulinumtoxinA include the following:
 
  • The recommended dosage for abobotulinumtoxinA is different from the recommended Botox® dosage or Xeomin® dosage, even though all three medications contain botulinum toxin type A. An abobotulinumtoxinA dose cannot be compared or converted to a Botox or Xeomin dose.

 

  • The medication comes in injectable form. It is delivered directly into the muscles that are causing the problems. When treating severe sweating, abobotulinumtoxinA is injected directly into the underarm.
     
  • Your healthcare provider may choose to use an anesthetic cream to numb your skin, but this is not necessary. If you are worried about pain, ask your healthcare provider about using an anesthetic cream.
     
  • The effects of abobotulinumtoxinA are not permanent. You will need to receive injections periodically in order to maintain the drug's effects.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to abobotulinumtoxinA dosing, please talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
