Article

A medical food (Zytaze, OCuSOFT) designed to provide nutritional support to enhance the effectiveness of injections of onabotulinum toxin A (Botox/Botox Cosmetic, Allergan), abobotulinum toxin A (Dysport, Tercica), and rimabotulinum toxin B (Myobloc, Solstice Neurosciences) in the treatment of blepharospasm, hemifacial spasm, and cosmetic procedures now is available in pharmacies as a prescription-only supplement.

Richmond, TX-A medical food (Zytaze, OCuSOFT) designed to provide nutritional support to enhance the effectiveness of injections of onabotulinum toxin A (Botox/Botox Cosmetic, Allergan), abobotulinum toxin A (Dysport, Tercica), and rimabotulinum toxin B (Myobloc, Solstice Neurosciences) in the treatment of blepharospasm, hemifacial spasm, and cosmetic procedures now is available in pharmacies as a prescription-only supplement. 

Formulated with a proprietary, patent-pending blend of highly bioavailable organic zinc and phytase, the product also has been reported to extend the duration of the injection treatments by almost 25%. It is taken 4 days before and on the day of a planned injection (two capsules per day). 

In the event that the supplement is not available at a local pharmacy, eye-care professionals can inform the pharmacy that it can be ordered directly from a wholesale distributor. The company anticipates increased availability through additional wholesale distributors and pharmacies soon.
