I Am on Amoxcillin for a Chest Infection and I Have Had a Botox Injection in Forehead. Is This Ok?

Botox and antibiotics

In general, you should avoid the following prior to having a treatment with Botox:

2) Ibuprofen
3) Vitamin E
4) Various Herbs and supplements (check with your provider on their recommendations)

The above may increase the likelihood of developing bruising. An antibiotic such as Amoxicillin will not interfere at all with your Botox treatment. I hope this helps, and good luck!

Botox and antibiotics

The two wouldn't be contraindicated, cosmetic Botox injections and taking an antibiotic at the same time. For all contraindications, please visit the website below.

Having Botox while on antibiotic

Having Botox injections performed while on Amoxicillin should not be a problem. The antibiotic will not interfere with your procedure at all. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck!

Botox and amoxicillin

Being on amoxicillin should not affect the Botox injection in the forehead.  There is no known interaction between the two, amoxicillin and Botox.

Amoxicillin and Botox

Amoxicillin does not react with Botox in any way. However keep in mind that Botox can cause 'flu like symptoms' in some patients. So, if you feel those symptoms a day after getting Botox ,those are temporary and you do not need any antibiotics for those symptoms.

Antibiotics and Botox treatment

There is absolutely no problem to receive amoxicillin or any other antibiotic for a chest infection, and then get or have had a Botox treatment. The two are mutually exclusive things. Dr. Benjamin Barankin, Toronto Dermatology Centre.
