Food Poisoning

What are the treatment options for botulism food poisoning?

A Answers (1)

  • Botulism food poisoning can be treated with medication if caught early. The medication is an antitoxin that prevents the botulism toxin from further damaging the body. However, medications can not reverse any damage that has already been done. The doctor may administer medication to induce vomiting or bowel movements. This treatment will remove any contaminated food that is still present in the stomach or intestines.
