Can I have Botox injections if I have CIDP?

Botox if you have CIDP
Neither I nor many people have likely provided a patient with CIDP with cosmetic Botox treatments. That said, it is not contraindicated specifically in the product monograph, but best to call Allergan (manufacturer) to check. You could consider a small injection amount to see how you react to start.
Botox and autoimmune problems
I do not know if there is any contraindication to your receiving Botox. I suspect there is not. I suggest you call the Allergen Botox Hotine for the answer. In addition ask the MD prescribing and diagnosing your illness for an opinion. Best to search about and get a definitive answer. I also will search around and get the best possible answer for you.
