Idopine drops can help the droopiness from Botox injections. You do not want to have more Botox at this point. It will take time for the Botox to go away but exercises do not help. Best, Dr. Green
Botox and droopy eyelid
Thank you for your question. Concerning your eyelids your physician should be able to prescribe Aproclonidine (Iopidine) to help improve the appearance of your droopy eyelid. Droopy eyelid is a well known but thankfully rare and reversible complication of Botox. These drops work on a tiny muscle in your eyelid and help pull it up a few millimeters. The drops must be repeated a few times a day for a continued effect. Typically the only contraindication to Aproclonidine use post Botox would be an allergy to the drug or to clonidine and concomitant use of a class of drugs known as MAOIs. In this case I do not think a refund is warranted since this is a known, reversible, and relatively easy to treat side effect. Regards, Dr. Matt Elias
