Is 300 units of botox a huge dose and did it cause long term swallowing paralysis since it's been 8 months and I'm still having problems?
Depends on location: 300 units of Botox (3 bottles) seems like a large dose. However, it would depend on what was being treated, and where. It isn't unusual to inject 100-150 units in the underarm area to help with sweating. Injected Botox in the face for wrinkles can range from 20-30 units per area. The effect of Botox is longer lasting for larger doses. ...Read more
