Go ahead and get the botox, it will be fine! I asked the same question of my Hep doctor when I was on treatment a few years ago and he said it would not have an adverse affect.  If it's going to make you feel better whilst treating go for it!

I have a plastic surgeon who is more than happy to do botox and has worked w/my hep doc on a surgery I had 3 weeks ago (breast -NOT augmentation!) I'm  going to have to wait until after tx w/hep doc permission.

I got botox right before beginning tx.  Then my botox doc dropped me when she found out I had hcv.  She was just... ignorant.  But anyway.  Didn't appear to have damaged my tx.
