Is there a limit to the amount of botulinum toxin I can take at once to treat multiple sclerosis?

ANSWER

There’s a limit to how much botulinum toxin you can get at once. So, it might not be a good choice for you when spasticity affects many of your muscles or when the spastic muscles are large, like those in your legs.

Your doctor will keep track of your symptoms to see if the treatment is working.
