More Information on Botulinum Toxin Type A Interactions

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when botulinum toxin type A is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Aminoglycoside Antibiotics
Taking botulinum toxin type A and an aminoglycoside antibiotic together may increase the nerve-blocking effects of botulinum toxin type A, perhaps increasing your risk of side effects of botulinum toxin type A. Talk with your healthcare provider before using these medications together.
 
Botulinum Toxin Type B
It is not known if it is safe to combine botulinum toxin type B and 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 botulinum toxin type A can increase the nerve-blocking effects of both medications. Check with your healthcare provider before using these medications together.
