for Injection

Dysport May Cause Serious Side Effects That Can Be Life Threatening Including: 


Problems breathing or swallowing
Spread of toxin effects

These Problems Can Happen Within Hours, Or Days To Weeks After An Injection Of Dysport. Call Your Doctor Or Get Medical Help Right Away If You Have Any Of These Problems After Treatment With Dysport: 

1. Problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. These problems can happen within hours, or days to weeks after an injection of DYSPORTusually because the muscles that you use to breathe and swallow can become weak after the injection. Death can happen as a complication if you have severe problems with swallowing or breathing after treatment with DYSPORT.
People with certain breathing problems may need to use muscles in their neck to help them breathe. These patients may be at greater risk for serious breathing problems with DYSPORT.
Swallowing problems may last for several weeks. People who cannot swallow well may need a feeding tube to receive food and water. If swallowing problems are severe, food or liquids may go into your lungs. People who already have swallowing or breathing problems before receiving DYSPORT have the highest risk of getting these problems.

2. Spread of toxin effects.In some cases, the effect of botulinum toxin may affect areas of the body away from the injection site and cause symptoms of a serious condition called botulism. The symptoms of botulism include:

loss of strength and muscle weakness all over the body
blurred vision and drooping eyelids
trouble saying words clearly (dysarthria)
trouble breathing
double vision
hoarseness or change or loss of voice (dysphonia)
loss of bladder control
trouble swallowing

These symptoms can happen within hours, or days to weeks after you receive an injection of DYSPORT.These problems could make it unsafe for you to drive a car or do other dangerous activities.

Dysport Is A Prescription Medicine That Is Injected Into Muscles And Used: 

to treat cervical dystonia (CD) in adults
to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults younger than 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary)
to treat increased muscle stiffness in adults with spasticity
to treat increased muscle stiffness in children 2 years of age and older with lower limb spasticity.

CD is caused by muscle spasms in the neck. These spasms cause abnormal position of the head and often neck pain. After DYSPORT is injected into muscles; those muscles are weakened for up to 12 to 16 weeks or longer. This may help lessen your symptoms.
Frown lines (wrinkles) happen because the muscles that control facial expression are used often (muscle tightening over and over). After DYSPORT is injected into the muscles that control facial expression, the medicine stops the tightening of these muscles for up to 4 months.

Upper limb spasticity in adults is caused by muscle spasms in the elbow, wrist, and finger muscles.
Lower limb spasticity in adults is caused by muscle spasms in the toe and ankle muscles. These spasms cause an abnormal position of these muscles. After DYSPORT is injected into the muscles, those muscles are weakened for up to 12 to 16 weeks or longer. This may help lessen your symptoms

Lower limb spasticity in children is caused by muscle spasms in calf muscles. These spasms cause an abnormal position of these muscles. After DYSPORT is injected into muscles, those muscles are weakened for up to 16 to 22 weeks or longer. This may help lessen your symptoms.

For the treatment of cervical dystonia, glabellar lines, and upper limb spasticity in adults, it is not known whether DYSPORT is safe or effective in children under 18 years of age.
For the treatment of lower limb spasticity, it is not known whether DYSPORT is safe or effective in children under 2 years of age.
It is not known whether DYSPORT is safe or effective for the treatment of other types of muscle spasms.
It is not known whether DYSPORT is safe or effective for the treatment of other wrinkles.

    • DYSPORT is an injection that your doctor will give you
    • DYSPORT is injected into the affected muscles
    • If you are and adult, your doctor may give you another dose of DYSPORT after 12 weeks or longer, if it is needed
    • If you are an adult being treated for CD or spasticity or you are a child (2 to 17 years of age) being treated for lower limb spasticity, your doctor may change your dose of DYSPORT, until you and your doctor find the best dose for you.
