Dysport 500IU Injection


Overview

Introduction

Dysport 500IU Injection is used in the treatment of localized muscle spasm. It relieves wry neck (spasmodic torticollis) in adults, involuntary closure of eyelids (blepharospasm), and foot deformity due to spasticity in children with cerebral palsy. It may also be prescribed for chronic migraines.


Dysport 500IU Injection is a prescription medicine that must be administered by a healthcare professional. You must receive the exact dose of it as per the prescription. An overdose of this medicine may have serious side effects on the body.

The common side effects of this medicine are muscle weakness and tiredness. It may also cause an injection site reaction (redness, pain, and swelling). This medicine may also lead to dizziness or sleepiness, so it is better to avoid driving or operating heavy machinery unless your doctor permits you to do so. The medicine can safely be used in children. 

Before taking this medicine, it is important to consult your doctor if you have any ongoing medication for any underlying disease. Pregnant and breastfeeding women must inform the doctor prior to the initiation of this treatment.

Uses of Dysport Injection

Side effects of Dysport Injection

Common
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Tiredness
  • Weakness
  • Injection site reactions (pain, swelling, redness)

How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Flu-like symptoms
    Get plenty of rest as exhausting or stressing out yourself could aggravate your condition. You should drink plenty of fluids as it will keep your throat moist and comfortable. Try taking steam inhalation. The moisture can ease your breathing and loosen mucus. You can consider sipping warm water or tea with honey and lemon. This will keep your nose and throat from being too dry. Using an air humidifier may also help. You can also gargle with salt water several times a day. See your doctor if your symptoms last longer than 3 weeks or get worse quickly. Avoid alcohol and do not smoke as they can aggravate your conditions.
  • Coping with Tiredness and Weakness
    Make sure you rest and drink plenty of fluids. Eat a well-balanced diet to keep your energy levels up. Do not drink too much alcohol. Do not drive or use tools or machinery until you feel better. Other things that can help include doing some gentle exercise every day, prioritizing and pacing your activities and having a short nap if you need to. If you are still having problems after a week, speak to your doctor, as they may want to change you to a different type of medicine.
  • Coping with Injection site reactions (pain, swelling, redness)
    Try to change the area of injection and the exact site of injection each time. Apply a cold compress to the injection site. These symptoms are usually mild and should only last a few hours. You can ask your doctor to recommend a medicine if it is bothering you.

How Dysport Injection works

Dysport 500IU Injection is a protein made by a type of bacteria (Clostridium botulinum type A). It works by blocking the release of a chemical (acetylcholine) which normally cause the muscle to contract. This temporarily weakens nerve activity in the muscles and helps reduce abnormal muscle contractions.
