Botox for excessive drooling


#1

Hi,

I’m working on a response to a government body about botox that’s used to help treat excessive drooling and I wonder if anyone has any experience of it?

The treatment I’m being asked to comment on is Clostridium botulinum neurotoxin type A.

It would be great to get your views on:
What your experience has been?
Who prescribed it for you?
What did you think the advantages and disadvantages of the treatment were?
Were you able to access the treatment fairly easily or did you have to jump through lots of hoops?
How long did it take you to get access to the treatment?
What would have made the process easier?

It would be great if you could share any views by next Monday 20 May please.

Thanks so much
