How to Mitigate the Risks of Non-cosmetic Use of Botox?
I'm considering Botox for neck muscle spasms. My neurologist is a leading authority on the non-cosmetic use of Botox. I'm apprehensive, though, because I know Botox has very serious risks associated with non-cosmetic use. I also have a few allergies and I'm afraid I may be allergic to Botox. Can an allergy test be performed beforehand? Are there any other ways to mitigate risk? Can I start with a very low dose and work up to a therapeutic level? Thank you so much for your suggestions.
