I will finish my Sulfameth for UTI treatment 3-4 days before my appointment for Botox. Will this affect my results from Botox or have complications?

Botox and antibiotic
Rest assured that there is no known interactions between botox and antibiotics. Hope that puts your mind at ease. Just make sure you stay away from motrin and aspirin around the time of your injections to help prevent any bruising, especially around the crows feet.
I could not find any interaction between Botox and any antibiotic. Further there is not biologic reason that this could happen.
You should be careful in the sun on this medication since there are cases of photoallergy to it.
Botox and Antibiotics?
When we screen patients for Botox, we look for neuromuscular and autoimmune disorders. We have not heard of or know of any contraindications (negative interactions) between Botox and antibiotics.

Yours is an intelligent question, and fortunately the answer is a reassuring one. There is no scientific evidence that Botox injections and antibiotics (any antibiotic) react negatively with each other.
There is no reason for concern
Taking antibiotics will not affect your Botox results. There is no need to worry. There is no cross-reaction between Botox and antibiotics. Enjoy the Botox Cosmetic.
