Feeling weak after Dysport

I Had a Dysport Injection 5 Days Ago and Now my Muscles Are Very Weak! I Am Freaking Out!  Is this a side effect? How long will this last?

I would recommend that you see your treating physician for a follow-up.  Dysport should not cause this generalized weakness.

Weakness with dysport


I  do not think that a risk of this medicine is  generalized weakness.. I don't even know that a huge amount woutd do this as these drugs work very locally. Small children have large amounts injected for muscle spastiucity and do not have systemic effects.
