I know that I should divulge any and all medical issues that I may have to my physician before beginning treatment, but is there anything pertinent that my doctor must know before beginning Botox injections?
It is always a good idea to let your physician know about any medications that you are taking or medical conditions that you have. In terms of Botox or Dysport, knowledge of pregnancy, any neurological conditions, and prior sensitivity to either products would be absolute contraindications to undergo Botox or Dysport injections. If you visit the web sites of either Botox or Dysport, there is a package insert that outlines all of the potential issues with each of these neuromodulators.
