I would like to know the experience of others in case if they had used Botox
Thanks in Advance,
My wife (who has MS) and I looked into Botox about 6 years ago after Marg broke her leg and ended up with severe spasms for several months. We spoke to a therapist at the March of Dimes who worked with both adults and children and she saw the results of Botox from several children who had used it for their spasticity due to various neurological diseases.
At first, it worked well but she told us that in every case the effect of the drug and the length it lasted lessened over time. Some patients were able to use it up to 5 years before it totally lost its effect while others got only about one year's use.
What concerned us the most was the fact that the spasticity returned to the kids, often worse than it was in the first place.
I'm thinking that in the last 6 years they may have been able to refine the use and dosage for patients but that is something you can certainly ask about.
