I just saw an article regarding a prescription with some clinical evidence behind it that shows it improves efficacy and duration of Botox results.

The supplement contains zinc and phytate, which if I understand correctly, are available over the counter as dietary supplements.

I am not sure if this is identical to what you read:

http://ihealthbulletin.com/blog/2010/09/05/botox-booster-supplement-zytaze-improves-botox/

More information here; this article does state that ZYTAZE will be prescription ... To eliminate the potential for patient abuse and resulting zinc toxicity, ZYTAZE™ will be marketed as a prescription (Rx) when commercially available in September 2010. ZYTAZE™ will be packaged in a blister pack of ten capsules ensuring both its Rx designation and the quantity of capsules so that physicians will remain in control at all times.

Right on! You have to believe the pharmaceutical industry isn't going to let go of their opportunity too cash in. And using Fear tactics/patient ignorance is so marketable. Shame on them.

Couldn't you just take a separate Zinc and Phytase supplement?

Maybe there is a good reason for the claritin and other cold meds to be behind the counter! Sad but that's our society! Yes I already knew about meth labs. Smile

That's what I'm wondering too. It would be great to prolong the effects of Botox!!

I already take Zinc supplements, so I may just bump up the frequency and/or amounts before my next Botox apt. At the same time, I may pick up some Phytase.

I work out and my botox lasts four or five months. I think it just depends on your particular body chemistry. Perhaps you metabolize it quickly? Have you tried it injected by different people to see if it is technique related?
