Thanks Clare, most interesting :) Especially this:

Surprisingly, literature about drugs available to doctors lists an interaction between Botox and hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil). The report of the interaction apparently comes from an experiment published in 1982, in which a diaphragm muscle was removed from a rat and placed in a flask, and made to contract over the course of an experiment that lasted between 30 and 120 minutes.(13) The diaphragm was less paralyzed if a very high amount of hydroxychloroquine was also in the flask.
because of my dystonia and awaiting a consultation with the other Neuro who will give me the botox injections to stop the muscles spasming. I even resorted to posting on a neuro specialty board and asking a doctor............funnily enough no-one replied about my concerns :hehe: probably because they had never had experience with it.
