Myobloc In New York City

Myobloc, formally referred to as RimabotulinumtoxinB, is derived from bacteria that can result in botulism. The toxins from Botulinum interfere with nerve activity of the muscles, which results in a decrease in muscle activity. It is used in the treatment of severe neck muscle spasms or cervical dystonia.

Myobloc treatments are safe and effective when administered by a qualified medical professional. Dr. Adam Kolker is regarded among the most experienced New York Myobloc providers. There are certain criteria that should be met and precautions that should be taken prior to receiving any type of injections. It is important to note Myobloc injections provide temporary relief. In some cases, symptoms have returned as soon as 3 months following the injection. After several treatments, symptoms may recur sooner than 3 months, as some people build up antibodies to the toxin.

The injections are administered into the muscle by your medical provider. They should be administered at least 3 or months apart. You may receive injections in multiple areas during a single treatment.

Individuals should not seek Myobloc treatments from multiple medical professionals. If you should switch treatment specialists, provide accurate information regarding the time of your most recent injection or treatment. Opting to get treatments more than advised will not enhance the effectiveness of your treatments and could lead to severe side effects. Always provide a complete list of medications you take to ensure that they don’t counteract with the injections. Medications including muscle relaxers, allergy or cold medicines, bronchodilators, urinary medicines, sleeping medications, IBS medications, or bladder medicines may increase the side effects that Myobloc may cause.

Inform the doctor of all current medications that you currently take or have recently stopped using, specifically the following antibiotics:

  • Amikin
  • Garamyciin
  • Kantrex
  • Mycifradin, Neo-Tab, Neo-Fradin
  • Humatin
  • Streptomycin
  • Tobramycin

Other prescriptions (not included in the above list) or OTC medications, herbal supplements, and vitamins may also interact with the treatments. 

The dosage amount, number, frequency, and the site will be decided by the medical professional. Consideration is given to your response to treatment and your condition. Most patients notice a difference in as little as 3 days or as long as 2 weeks, with effects lasting between 3 and 6 months.
