Bladder infection and Botox

Take the medication and fix the problem. Don't worry about it. I've seen no changes when people have to take Cipro after Botox or fillers for things like bladder infections or other.

Bladder infection and fillers

Dear flightrisk,

Taking the antibiotic Ciprofloxacin for a urinary tract infection should have no effect or interaction on the physiological and pharmacological actions of the Botox and Juvederm. Botox is a complex protein used to block the activity of skeletal muscle, specifically facial muscles of animation, whereas Juvederm is a polymer of sugar molecules used to occupy space in the subcutaneous or intradermal environment. The antibiotic should have no effect on these chemical structures or activities and you should feel quite confident and maintain your Ciprofloxacin treatment for your urinary tract infection.

It would be prudent to contact your injection physician’s office to confirm their opinion on this matter, but in general there is no evidence suggesting a conflict of this drug with your Botox or soft tissue filler.

I hope this information has been of some assistance and best of luck.

Antibiotics and Botox

Botox is a great way to minimize the wrinkles in your face and I do not know of any contraindication with Cirp or any other antibiotics.

Safety of antibioitics after treatment with Botox

You will be completely safe to take ciprofloxacin, or any other antibiotics, after treatment with Botox.  The antibiotics will not interact with your filler or Botox treatment, and will not effect the results of your treatment.

Can I take Cipro after Botox?

Antibiotics should not negatively effect your Botox and should be fine for you to take for your infection.

Thank you for your question!

Antibiotics after Botox and Juvederm

I am not aware of any interaction between Cipro and Botox, or Cipro and Juvederm, whether these are injected alone or in combination. Whenever situations like this come up, I always recommend checking with the physician that prescribed the medication or administered the injections. Medication to treat an infection (bladder or otherwise) usually takes precedent.

Botox, Juvederm Voluma, and antibiotics

While there are no specific contraindications to Ciprofloxacin, this antibiotic MAY shorten the duration that Botox works to relax facial muscles -- there are a few scattered reports over the years.  There should be no effect on the Juvederm Voluma.  Regardless, the first priority is to treat your bladder infection, and Cipro is a very good choice.
