  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico

  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Dysport patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Dysport patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Dysport. You must also provide details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan and your household income. This is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who will supply the medication, so it is important to make sure this information is accurate and up to date.

We will review the information that you have provided to determine whether you are eligible for patient assistance. If we can pre-qualify you for assistance NiceRx will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. If you are approved by the pharmaceutical company you will typically start receiving your medication in 6 – 8 weeks.

What is Dysport?

Dysport is a prescription medicine given by injection. It is used to treat:

  1. Moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and on the forehead (glabellar lines) in adults
  2. Cervical dystonia in adults
  3. Muscle spasm and stiffness of the arms, hands, legs and feet in adults and children aged 2 years and older

Dysport is a type of botulinum toxin, a protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Clostridium botulinum toxins can cause a disease called botulism, but they are also used in medical treatments. You may have heard of another type of botulinum toxin called Botox. Dysport is similar to Botox but is a different botulinum toxin.

Dysport is injected into muscles to smoothen their surface and to decrease muscle movement. It works by stopping the nerve cells in the muscle from receiving signals that tell it to contract, temporarily paralyzing the muscle. If you have one of the above needs or conditions your Doctor may prescribe Dysport to you. It is given as an injection by a Doctor or other qualified healthcare professional. Your Doctor will decide how much Dysport you need per injection and how often you will need Dysport injections.

Dysport active ingredients

The active ingredient in Dysport is called abobotulinumtoxinA. It is a form of toxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When Dysport is injected into a muscle the abobotulinumtoxinA it contains attaches to the nerve cells in that muscle. This stops the nerve from receiving signals that tell the muscle to activate. The muscle is then paralyzed, causing it to relax and stop moving. This muscle paralysis is not permanent. Over time the abobotulinumtoxinA degrades and stops affecting the muscle it was injected into.

Dysport side effects

The most common side effects caused by Dysport include:

  • Discomfort, pain and swelling at the site of injection
  • Headaches
  • Feeling sick (nausea)
  • Tiredness
  • A dry mouth
  • A stuffy nose
  • A runny nose
  • A cough
  • Fever
  • An increase in upper respiratory tract infections (like nose, throat and sinus infections)
  • Muscle pain
  • Muscle weakness
  • Problems swallowing
  • Problems speaking
  • Swelling and drooping of the eyelids
  • Blood in your urine

In rare instances Dysport can cause more serious side effects, like:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Severe problems with speech
  • Severe problems with swallowing that can lead to food and drink entering the lungs
  • A loss of muscle strength all over your body
  • Blurred vision, double vision and problems keeping your eyes open
  • Loss of bladder control

Your Doctor will assess the benefits of taking Dysport against your risk of side effects.

Dysport drug interactions

Dysport can interact with other medications, particularly:

  • Any other forms of botulinum neurotoxin, such as Botox, Myobloc or Xeomin.
  • Any aminoglycoside antibiotics, such as gentamicin, tobramycin, amikacin or neomycin, used to treat a range of bacterial infections, including tuberculosis.
  • Any anticholinergic medications, typically used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, asthma, a range of bladder conditions and disordered muscle movements caused by Parkinson’s disease.
  • Any other medications that affect your muscles, such as muscle relaxants.

Dysport warning and precautions

The abobotulinumtoxinA in Dysport can spread from the area of injection causing symptoms of botulism, including blurred and double vision, muscle weakness or severe difficulties with breathing or swallowing that can be life-threatening. If you experience serious side effects after using Dysport, seek urgent medical attention.

Do not take Dysport if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient abobotulinumtoxinA

  • Have ever had an allergic reaction to another form of botulinum toxic, like Botox, Myobloc or Xeomin
  • Are allergic to any cow milk proteins
  • Have a skin infection at the proposed site of injection

Dysport should not be given to people younger than:

  • 18 years of age for glabellar lines
  • 18 years of age for cervical dystonia
  • 2 years of age for lower limb spasticity

Talk to your Doctor before taking Dysport if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Dysport
  • Have any conditions that affect your muscles or nerves
  • Have diabetes
  • Have any conditions that affect your breathing, such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
