Why Would a Dr Tell You to Get More Units of Botox when You Have Reacted to 100?

Unfortunately, there is not enough information. Do you mean that  you favorably reacted to 100 in that there is no muscle function, or do you mean you had an ill reaction to the Botox? If you had a favorable response and your doctor suggests you get more, then are they referring to other areas?

Botox 100 units

Is this related to treatment of excessive sweating? 100 units botox for cosmetic treatment is A LOT !!

Getting more Botox

This question is next to impossible to answer without more information. What kind of "reaction" did you have? Why were you receiving treatment?

This is a very nonspecific question.

Obviously your doctor believes you need additional treatment.  However without any clinical specifics it is impossible to formulate an opinion for why this might be.  Consider reposting with more information.  Why are you getting BOTOX?  Is this the first time you have gotten BOTOX? Is this the first time you have worked with this physician?

Botox and more treatment

Without knowing more of a history and knowing exactly what you had done, it is impossible for me to guess what is necessary.
