    Default Botox for spasticity can stop working...

    This study popped up on the right side of the forum and I thought it was worth posting here as a thread as some people with CP use botox. http://www.aan.com/rss/index.cfm/getfile/AAN_4495.mp3
    Apparently people can become immune to botox. I always had my suspicions about botox and CP.

    I didn't read the article But Kathleen got Botox for several years in her ankle for spasticity from stroke. It worked great for probably 4-5 years (upping the dose just once). Then it stopped working and she needed tendon release surgery. We knew it would probably end up not working after a certain amount of time, so yes the body does become immune to the effects of the botox over time.
