Hello. My name is Susan, I'm 64 and I have been using botox for 5 yrs or so for dystonia. I started when my larynx would spasm shut so I couldn't breath and my neck was pulled so far to the right I couldn't drive. I have always been a great sleeper but for the last few years have increasingly long and severe bouts of insomnia. I have been sleeping 12-15 hrs for a couple of weeks and it just dawned on me to question whether the botox is the cause. I am due again tomorrow. Almost any drug that says may cause drowsiness "wires" me including pain meds. I am going to be keeping track of it now but am really happy to find a site where others have reported the same. Thank you.
