Be sure to return to your injector and let them know how you're doing. The eyedrops will often help and keep trying to move your eyelid and it may return sooner. Best. Dr. ALDO
The iopidine often times can help. What also may help is to try to keep using the muscle that has weakened. If you keep trying to use that muscle, the dysport may wear out quicker. Hope you get better soon!
Take care,Dr. Sajan
There is not much you can do at this time. many cases would resolve on their own within 6 weeks of the incident. But in many cases, you may have to wait the duration of action of dysport which should wear off in 3-4 months. Iodipine does not reverse dysport or botox effect, it uses alternative ways to improve the eyelids opening. But it is very limited in its effect
In your case, this is an injection that should be left to experts of the facial nerve. These are the Facial Plastic Surgeons/Otolaryngologists. Now to deal with the current problem is tough. Iopidine is the only thing that can offer some relief but not complete improvement. You just need to ride this out for the 3 months. There are often injections which can help with synkinesis after a facial nerve palsy.
This is a risk of getting botulinum toxin treatment. There is no reversing agent. It needs to wear off. The iopidine may not work to open the eyelid until most of the dysport effect has worn off. I found that these drops do not begin to make a difference until there is only about 4 to 6 weeks of effect left. This has to do with the fact that the Mueller's muscle in the upper eyelid is not a strictly adrenergic innervated muscle. So if you have used the iopidine and it does not make a difference, this suggests that the unwanted disport affect is likely to last 6 or more weeks.
