I have suffered with Torticollis for over 21 years, being treated by a neurologist with Botox. Now Botox is no longer
 Even with an increase it did nothing and have me no relief. I will mention this drug to my doctor, Thomas Hughes,  Tidewater Neurology.
I not sure Botox could help this.
Normal treatmnent of Torticollis :1)Non-surgical treatment
For children under the age of half, non-surgical treatment can achieve satisfactory results. Therefore, once diagnosed, it should be treated as soon as possible. Non-surgical treatments include topical heat, massage, bed rest, and manual traction.
2. Surgical treatment is the most effevtive way.
what drug are you referring to?  I've had to stop all day meds as they actually compounded my dysphagia to the point I could not swallow anything.  Now I can eat again.  But need some daytime med to help with muscle contractions.  Clonazepam and diazepam were both tried before.
