BOTOX is reconstituted prior to use with sterile 9 mg/ml (0.9%) preservative-free sodium chloride solution for injection. It is good practice to perform vial reconstitution and syringe preparation over plastic-lined paper towels to catch any spillage. An appropriate amount of diluent (see dilution table below) is drawn up into a syringe. The exposed portion of the rubber septum of the vial is cleaned with alcohol (70%) prior to insertion of the needle. Since BOTOX is denatured by bubbling or similar violent agitation, the diluent should be injected gently into the vial. Discard the vial if a vacuum does not pull the diluent into the vial. Reconstituted BOTOX is a clear colourless to slightly yellow solution free of particulate matter. When reconstituted, BOTOX may be stored in a refrigerator (2-8°C) for up to 24 hours prior to use. After this period used or unused vials should be discarded.
Each vial is for single use only.
Care should be taken to use the correct diluent volume for the presentation chosen to prevent accidental overdose. If different vial sizes of BOTOX are being used as part of one injection procedure, care should be taken to use the correct amount of diluent when reconstituting a particular number of units per 0.1 ml. The amount of diluent varies between BOTOX 50 Allergan Units, BOTOX 100 Allergan Units and BOTOX 200 Allergan Units. Each syringe should be labelled accordingly.
