Side Effects of AbobotulinumtoxinA

While most people have no problems with abobotulinumtoxinA, side effects can include things such as headache, swollen eyelids, and upper respiratory tract infection. In general, such reactions are mild and easily treated. If you develop serious side effects, such as speech problems, difficulty breathing, or loss of bladder control, tell your healthcare provider right away.

An Introduction to AbobotulinumtoxinA Side Effects

As with all medications, side effects are possible with abobotulinumtoxinA (Dysport®). However, not everyone who receives the medicine will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
