Is there any reason to avoid muscle relaxants?

You should avoid injectables if you:

  • Are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • Suffer from neuro-muscular or auto-immune disorders.
  • Have a known sensitivity to the solution (BtxA or other constituents).
  • Are taking certain medications such as quinine, aminoglycoside antibiotics.

If you take omega-3 and anti-coagulant NSAIDS for bruising, or have suffered from dysmorphic psychological issues, be sure to mention this to your clinician.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
