Children:

<18yrs: not established.

Contraindications:

Infection at proposed inj site.

Boxed Warning:

Distant spread of toxin effect.

Warnings/Precautions:

Not interchangeable with other botulinum toxin products. Risk of distant spread of toxic effect (esp. in children treated for spasticity); see full labeling. Increased risk of serious adverse reactions (including excessive weakness, dysphagia, aspiration pneumonia) with unapproved use. Pre-existing dysphagia or breathing difficulties. Neuromuscular disorders (eg, ALS, myasthenia gravis, Lambert-Eaton syndrome); monitor closely. Compromised respiratory status; monitor.

Muscle spasms:

Indications for BOTOX:

Treatment of upper limb spasticity: in the flexor muscles of the elbow, wrist, finger and thumb in adults and children 2–17yrs. Treatment of lower limb spasticity in the flexor muscles of the ankle and toe in patients ≥18yrs. Cervical dystonia in patients ≥16yrs, to reduce severity of abnormal head position and neck pain. Strabismus or blepharospasm related to dystonia in patients ≥12yrs.

Limitations of Use:

Not shown to improve upper extremity functional abilities or range of motion at a joint affected by fixed contracture. Not intended to substitute usual standard of care rehabilitation regimens.

Adult:

Should be administered and managed by experienced physicians. Max cumulative dose: 400 Units in a 3-month interval. Individualize. Upper limb spasticity: usual range: 75–400 Units divided among selected muscles (see full labeling) per treatment session; max 50 Units/site. Lower limb spasticity: 300–400 Units divided among 5 muscles; max 50 Units/site. May repeat treatment after effect of the previous injection diminishes, but no sooner than 12 weeks. Cervical dystonia: treatment-naive: use lower initial dose; adjust subsequent doses based on response; max 50 Units/site. Blepharospasm: initially 1.25–2.5 Units into each of 3 sites per affected eye. May repeat treatment after 3 months if insufficient response. Max cumulative dose: 200 Units per 30-day period. Strabismus: use electromyographic technique; initially 1.25–2.5 Units in any one muscle. Max 25 Units/muscle as a single injection. Premedicate with local anesthetic or ocular decongestant prior to inj: see full labeling.

Children:

Should be administered and managed by experienced physicians. Max cumulative dose: 8 Units/kg or 300 Units in a 3-month interval, whichever is less. Individualize; see full labeling. Upper limb spasticity: <2yrs: not established. ≥2yrs: 3–6 Units/kg divided among affected muscles (see full labeling); max 50 Units/site. Max 6 Units/kg or 200 Units, whichever is less, per treatment session. May repeat treatment after effect of the previous injection diminishes, but no sooner than 12 weeks. Lower limb spasticity: <18yrs: not established. Cervical dystonia: <16yrs: not established. Strabismus or blepharospasm: <12yrs: not established.

Contraindications:

Overactive bladder/enuresis:

Indications for BOTOX:

Adults who have an inadequate response to or are intolerant of an anticholinergic drug: in overactive bladder with symptoms of urge urinary incontinence, urgency, and frequency or urinary incontinence due to detrusor overactivity associated with a neurologic condition (eg, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis).

Adult:

See full labeling. Should be administered and managed by experienced physicians. Max cumulative dose: 400 Units in a 3-month interval. Give prophylactic antibiotics 1–3 days pre-treatment, during, and 1–3 days post-treatment. Discontinue anti-platelet therapy at least 3 days before procedure. May premedicate with local or general anesthetic. Overactive bladder: Max dose: 100 Units/treatment; give 20 injections of 0.5mL each into the detrusor muscle via a flexible or rigid cystoscope, avoiding the trigone. Detrusor overactivity: Max dose: 200 Units/treatment, give 30 injections of 1mL (~6.7 Units) each into the detrusor muscle via a flexible or rigid cystoscope, avoiding the trigone. Both: observe at least 30mins post-injection. May consider re-treatment after effect of the previous injection diminishes but no sooner than 12 weeks.

Children:

<18yrs: not established.

Contraindications:

Infection at proposed inj site. Acute UTI. Patients with acute urinary retention and post-void residual urine volume >200mL, who are not routinely performing clean intermittent self-catheterization.

Warnings/Precautions:

Not interchangeable with other botulinum toxin products. Risk of distant spread of toxic effect (esp. in children treated for spasticity); see full labeling. Increased risk of serious adverse reactions (including excessive weakness, dysphagia, aspiration pneumonia) with unapproved use. Neuromuscular disorders (eg, ALS, myasthenia gravis, Lambert-Eaton syndrome); monitor closely. Compromised respiratory status; monitor. Non-catheterizing patients (esp. multiple sclerosis, diabetes): monitor post-void residual (PVR) urine volume within 2 weeks post-treatment and periodically as needed up to 12 weeks; if PVR >200mL, initiate catheterization and continue until PVR <200mL. Catheterization may be required if voiding difficulties develop. Recurrent UTIs. Contains human albumin; monitor for possible viral disease and variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease transmission. Elderly. Pregnancy. Nursing mothers.
