Does anyone know if there is a test that can be done to indicate if you have built up antibodies to botox? My neurologist believes that I have and now he is trying me on various medications to help me keep my eyelids open and stop the spasms. Thanks for your help.

Apparently the test to see whether Botox still works for you is to inject the muscles in your forehead. If it paralyzes them then the botox works. There is an "official test" for antibodies but I've heard that it's not a true picture of the situation.
