Thank you for your question. Botox is a neurotoxin used to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. It should be safe to receive Botox treatment. However, I would discuss this with your neurologist before receiving treatment. Make sure to tell your injector you have this problem. Best of Luck!

Botox with a history of seizure disorder
Thank you for your question 23sophia. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression. A seizure disorder is not a contraindication to Botox treatment.
Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

History of seizures, Botox ok?
Yes, Botox is quite alright to have if you suffer from seizures. I would go ahead and get injected. There is no increase in seizures with Botox.
Botox in patient with seizures
There should be no problem getting the injection but be sure to check with your neurologist especially about the medication you are on and the type of seizures
Botox and seizures
Botox is a medication that is injected into target muscles of the face to selectively relax those muscles for fewer/softer wrinkles.
Botox is a safe medication with millions of injections performed every year without incident. It does not react with many medications. For a patient who has a history of seizures, it's important that their seizures are under control. I would hold off on any injections until your seizure disorder is adequately treated. Safety comes first.
