Xeomin is a medication consisting of botulinum toxin type A and is indicated for the treatment of blepharospasm (eyelid spasms), spasmodic torticollis (twisted neck), and upper limb spasticity.

- Increased muscle stiffness in the arm of adults with upper limb spasticity;
- Abnormal head position and neck pain in adults with spasmodic torticollis;
- Abnormal spasms of the eyelids (blepharospasm) in adults.
