Botox contraindications

Thank you for your question rreis. Phentermine is an amphetamine used as an appetite suppressant. Such a medication is not a contraindication to Botox treatment. Contraindications include neurological diseases such as myesthenia gravis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gherig's disease), and Lambert-Eaton syndrome. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

There is no contraindication for receiving Botox injections while taking penthermine that I am aware of. Having an injector with experience is extremely important. I suggest to consult with an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

There is no problem that I am aware of. The big issue with phentermine is being put to sleep because of problems maintaining blood pressure.

Botox and Phentermine

Weight loss with the aid of Phentermine and having Botox for fine lines and wrinkles is not considered problematic nor contraindicated. You raise a good point though as to the importance of discussing all medications (prescription/over the counter/herbal/supplements) with the professional who will be performing your injections.
