What is Xeomin (1×100 IU)?
Xeomin (1×100 IU) is an effective drug that has been available by prescription since 2005, to treat pain in the head and neck pain symptoms that occur during Cervical Dystonia (CD). It is also used to treat muscle spasms in the eyelid which is otherwise known as Blepharospasm. The Blepharospasm is usually an effect of Botox.
How does Xeomin (1×100 IU) work in the body?
Xeomin is used to treat muscle spasms and pain. Once XEOMIN has been injected into the muscles, it starts to inhibit acetylcholine from being released. It is this chemical which makes fibres in the muscle to contract, so without acetylcholine, muscles will contract less, resulting in less spasms and discomfort to the individual.
Who should not use Xeomin?
Patients who have bleeding disorders of any type.
Patients who have generalised disorders of muscle activity, e.g. myasthenia gravis.
Individuals with a known hypersensitivity to any component of the formulation.
Pregnant or lactating women.
How long will the results last?
Results can vary, but typically last for three months.
Are there any associated side effects with Xeomin?
There have been reported side effects of bruising or bleeding at the site of injection, headaches, and brow droop.
