I have anti-phosphilipid syndrome: Can i have botox?

Anti-phospholipid syndrome and Botox

There is no known contraindication with Botox.  However, there may be a syndrome associated with it that your physician would advise you against be injected with Botox.  I suggest you consult a rheumatologist for clearance before you receive injections.

No contraindication is stated by the manufacturer for this condition. Nevertheless, there are other chronic conditions to keep in mind when undergoing Botox therapy.
