Who Is XEOMIN for?
XEOMIN (zee-oh-min) is a treatment option for adults with upper limb spasticity, cervical dystonia, and blepharospasm.
State-of-the-art proprietary manufacturing process purifies botulinum toxin A into XEOMIN
The active ingredient in XEOMIN is a type of botulinum toxin called incobotulinumtoxinA. Merz, the maker of XEOMIN, uses a proprietary purification process to remove accessory proteins from botulinum toxin A to make XEOMIN.1 The clinical significance of a lack of accessory proteins, including any impact on safety or efficacy, has not been established.
XEOMIN® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to treat:1

- abnormal head position and neck pain in adults with cervical dystonia (CD)
- abnormal spasm of the eyelids (blepharospasm) in adults who have had prior treatment with onabotulinumtoxinA (BOTOX®)
