It is recommended that 2 weeks prior to your treatment and also 2 weeks after you do not take any antibiotics otherwise the effect of Botox may not appear.

Some medications decrease neuromuscular transmission and generally should be avoided in patients treated with botulinum toxin. These include aminoglycosides, penicillamine, quinine, and calcium channel blockers.

Depends of the antibiotic. Usually you will may, therefore if you are taking antibiotics is because you have an infection, so to avoid complications, is a better idea have Botox application some days after finish your antibiotic regimen.

you may not take antibiotics that are called aminosides
tell the doctor who is going to inject botox any medicine you are currently taking or have been taken a few days before

You should better talk to the specialist and let him/her know about your antibiotic treatment. During the consultation at Renew Skin & Health Clinic (I am giving this as an example because I had wrinkle reduction Botox treatment there), the specialist will assess your medical history, current health condition and also take into account on-going treatments. So only after can he/she tell you if the antibiotics can or cannot interfere or cause complications. I strongly recommend Renew Clinic because they really know what they are doing there and have a few of the most experienced practitioners in such Botox treatments. Cheers!

if you are taking antibiotics, we do not recommend you to apply botox. It is nonsence. If you are OK, you will apply it.

Take care.
