If I've had no bad reactions to Botox type A, is myobloc type B going to be the same?

Myobloc has similar side effect profile as Botox
I wouldn't worry at all. These are very similar products. Having a reaction to either one is extremely rare.
Botox versus Myobloc - different medications, different indications
Generally speaking, allergic reactions are extremely rare to either one of these medications. Type A Botulinum toxin (Botox) is used for cosmetic procedures, and Type B Botulinum toxin (Myobloc) is used moreso for neuromuscular disorders. I recommend you contact your neurologist or orthopedic surgeon with Myobloc-specific questions.
This is a cosmetic medical site and your question relates to use of Botox for a non-cosmetic reason. I strongly recommend you direct all your questions related to your neuromuscular pathology to your treating doctors.
