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 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!
