Answer

Neuromuscular Blocker Agent, Toxin

Neuromuscular blocker agents have been shown to decrease pain.

Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox)

Botulinum neurotoxin is produced by the gram-negative anaerobic bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This agent acts by interrupting signal transmission within the peripheral and sympathetic nervous system, leaving sensory transmission intact. Botulinum toxins block acetylcholine release, causing a chemical denervation.
