I take 100mg of doxycycline a day for acne. I have had some botox done one recently for cosmetic reasons and wonder if taking the antibiotic might reduce the efficacy of botox? I'm now 2 days post-injections and the normal paraylsis of the muscles has started to set in.
Will Taking an Antibiotic, Like Doxycycline for Acne Interfere with the Efficacy of Botox?

Botox at the use of Antibiotics?
Thank you for the question.
The use of oral antibiotics should not interfere with the efficacy of Botox ( directly injected into the target muscle).
Do antibiotics effect Botox treatments?
The two do not affect each other although antibiotics combined with laser or photodynamic acne treatments may be a contraindication.
