Has anyone done botox on their salivary glands for excessive mucus? My mom has excessive mucus due to severe dysphagia and she is basically up all day and night suctioning out or spitting out her excess mucus so she does not choke to death. My sister talked to a neurologist who works at the same hospital she does who said that botox injections in the salivary glands should help. My moms old neurologist never suggested this. We recently moved her here and I am taking her to a new neurologist next Tuesday to see if they have heard of the whole botox thing...I would feel better if any of you had tried it or had at least heard of it.
