Hello @lhirsch3 — Welcome to Connect. There is another discussion with the same name where your post will receive more visibility. I'm tagging our moderator @ethanmcconkey to see if we should move your post to the following discussion:

Have you discussed the treatments with your doctor? I did find some negative information but I would still discuss it with my doctor.

I talked to my neurologist yesterday. He said it may make me tired but would not trigger another bout of GBS. He had no opinion on Restylane. He’s rather hasty and didn’t seem knowledgeable in either area, and so I thought I’d seek other opinions. I did run it by two female neurologists when I was in the hospital and in rehab. They both felt Botox and fillers are safe. The both use Botox for patients with other issues like migraines.
