XEOMIN® Dosing Recommendations for Adults with Cervical Dystonia

In the treatment of cervical dystonia, XEOMIN is injected into the sternocleidomastoid, levator scapulae, splenius capitis, scalenus, and/or the trapezius muscle(s). The dose and number of injection sites in each treated muscle should be individualized based on the number and location of the muscle(s) to be treated, the degree of dystonia, muscle mass, body weight, and response to any previous botulinum toxin injections.1
