Specific Info on Drugs That Interfere With AbobotulinumtoxinA

AbobotulinumtoxinA Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur if you take abobotulinumtoxinA with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Aminoglycoside Antibiotics
Taking abobotulinumtoxinA and an aminoglycoside antibiotic together may increase the nerve-blocking effects of abobotulinumtoxinA, perhaps increasing your risk of side effects. Talk with your healthcare provider before using these medications together.
 
Anticholinergic Medications
Combining abobotulinumtoxinA with anticholinergic medications may increase the risk of side effects like dry eyes, dry mouth, constipation, or difficulty passing urine. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these drugs at the same time.
 
Other Botulinum Products
It is not known if it is safe to combine abobotulinumtoxinA with other botulinum products, 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 abobotulinumtoxinA can increase the nerve-blocking effects of both medications. Check with your healthcare provider before using these medications together.
