"I have cervical dystonia but it doesn't have me," said Dawn Brinkley, 2010 Mrs. North Carolina and an active volunteer who was diagnosed with cervical dystonia in 2004. "People may not know what cervical dystonia and blepharospasm are, and they may underestimate the impact of these conditions on a person's life.

"With the availability of XEOMIN in the U.S., we have another therapeutic option for the treatment of these conditions in appropriate patients."

Botulinum toxin is the only FDA-approved medication for cervical dystonia orblepharospasm. Speak with your doctor to see if XEOMIN may be right for you.
