Question about Botox...


Recommended Posts


I am into my 8th month of withdrawal.  I still have daily symptoms but I am very slowly making some progress.  I seem to have hit the ten month wave a week or so ago.  It was terrifying and severe and lasted a week and a half.  I feel I have made some more improvement since then. 


From 2007-2016 I got botox injections every year to control my excessive sweating.  It is getting bad again and I am wondering if having Botox during withdrawal is a bad idea or if there are any potential adverse reactions because of it?  I never had issues with it for the 9 years I had it done but everything is scary in withdrawal.


Any tips or advice?  Thank you.
