Unfortunately there is no 'antidote' to Botox. In some cases, the effects can be changed - for instance, differences in one side versus another can be lessened with additional Botox treatment.
Care must be taken when administering Botox to start with lower doses and advance as needed to get the effect desired.

The short answer is 'no'.
Botox is a powerful neurotoxin that nature designed to bind avidly to other proteins and deactivate them. There is not a reliable antidote for it for cosmetic use.
The fortunate thing about Botox is that is temporary. Certainly this is not a consolation for you, since you're experiencing the adverse effects of Botox: too much paralysis or paralysis in a region that is undesirable.
While there are ways to treat some of the side effects of an injector using too much Botox, the best best is generally to wait until the Botox subsides.
To avoid this problem, an experienced injector will be very conservative when treating a new patient. Additional units can be provided much more easily than dealing with the problems of over-injection.
Rarely the result may not be enough to make you happy. Many physicians are conservative and prefer to not put in too much initially until they see how you react. More units may be administered two to four weeks after to give you a better result. If not enough areas were treated and there is unwanted persistent muscle movement in a specific location of the face, then those areas can be treated subsequently giving you a better result.

Unfortunately, Botox cannot be "reversed". There are eyedrops available that may alleviate certain effects, such as droopy eyelid (albeit via a different mechanism).
Fortunately, though, the toxin "wears off" with time.
Unfortunately no, there is nothing that can be injected to diminish the effect of Botox. The good news is that it only takes time. By the time the standard four months is up any trace of the Botox will have been metabolized and the area should go back to its normal state. It is dose dependent so if a small amount is used then is will diminish quicker.
The effects of Botox injections cannot be reversed as far as anyone knowsl The only area that can be treated is if some Botox gets too low or deeply behind the canthus and forehead muscles and gets into the area behind the eye, which can result in mild upper lid weakness or drooping. A prescription eye medication can help strengthen the weaked eye muscle, but it must be used daily until the Botox solution has metabolized away.
Unlike dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm, there is nothing that can be injected or taken to reverse the effects of Botox. Eye drops can help in certain situations, but generally speaking, the only resolution for bad Botox injections is to wait until the effects wear off.
With ONE exception, the effect of Botox on facial muscles CANNOT be chemically reversed. You will have to wait the 3-5 months Botox lasts for the effect to wear off.
In cases where the injector placed Botox too close to the upper lid muscle (Levator) or the patient rubbed Botox from the corners of the eyes into the upper lid, the Levator muscle becomes weakened and the upper lid drops resulting in a sleepy look. This can be largely helped with special eye drops.
There are no known agents that can reverse Botox at this time. Time and conservative management are the mainstays of corrective therapy. Theoretically, stimulation of the muscles with attempted movement or exercising of facial expressions may hasten the time to complete recovery.
