User Reviews for IncobotulinumtoxinA to treat Cervical Dystonia

Also known as: Xeomin

PookieKitty ยท Taken for 2 to 5 years April 29, 2016

Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA): “The first set of injections caused my cervical dystonia substantially worse and very painful for approximately a week. Then it seemed to help for about 3 weeks. The second set of injections (forehead, side of head, back of head, side of neck, back of neck, shoulders, spine) caused WAY worse symptoms for about 3 weeks & relief off and on for a week. It's hard to tell whether it's the xeomin or the invasive injections. I'm struggling with whether to attempt more injections. On a side note I was on high dose of zanaflex which did help the most..but, my liver enzymes shot through the roof and I was taken off completely after being on it for years. I was prescribed Baclofen. So far no relief.”
