  • Perceived effectiveness for Stiffness/Spasticity: Slight
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Never
  • Burden: Very
Advice & Tips: The first 2 times that I received the Botox injections my arm was not rigid after being on it for 3 weeks. It wore off in three months so I had to go back for another injection. The third time I noticed that my arm was a little weak so we decreased my dosage this helped. Then in November of 2012 I received more injections including my shoulder at that time my arm was like I had a stroke I could not use it at all.. So in April 2013 we decided not to continue the Botox. I still have stiffness but I am able to use my arm .
