I have been taking spironolactone for a month a half to clear up hormonal acne. I am 42 and am going in for botox in 2 weeks. Are there any complications or do I need not worry? Thanks!

Interaction between Botox and Spironolactone
There are no known interactions between Botox and spironolactone. You should have no problem with your Botox treatment as long as you see a highly trained and experienced injector. Dr. Benjamin Barankin, Toronto Dermatology Centre

Botox vs Spironolactone, there is no contraindication
There is no problem with using these two treatments together at the same time. I'm not sure why this came up as a concern, but I am unaware of any interaction between Botox injections and oral medications. I was unable to find any publications referring to such a complication on MedLine. I hope this helps!

There aren't any indications why you couldn't have a Botox treatment/injection while taking Spironolactone, however, always discuss your health history and any prescription medications and/or over the counter supplements you are taking prior to any treatment.

Happily there is no reason why you can not get Botox or any of the other wrinkle relaxers while on Spironolactone or most other medications. We manage many adult women with acne with Spironolactone because is is very safe and effective.
