Botox 100IE Injection Mechanism:
Botox 100 IU injections interact with proteins present in muscles and exocrine glands to block the release of acetylcholine (ACh) into the spaces between neurons. This process suppresses cholinergic nerve overactivity, resulting in diminished cholinergic transmission. Topical injections suppress overactive nerves and relieve spasms and neuropathy.
Interaction with other medicines:
Tell your doctor about all the medicines you are taking or have taken before treatment.
