Treatment

If you are diagnosed with botulism early, your healthcare provider can treat you successfully with an antitoxin that blocks the action of the bacterial toxin circulating in your blood. Although antitoxin keeps the disease from becoming worse, it will still take many weeks before you recover.

Your healthcare provider may try to remove any contaminated food still in your gut by making you vomit or by giving you an enema.
