    don't take the tablets. it does not help at all and would do harm. the only helpful medicine is Botox injection. or you can do meditation, which may help.

    at one point, i took some medicine and had to have my blood tested every several weeks. it was terrible experience.

    I understand that CBD can be helpful.. Good quality capsules or oil do not have the THC component that causes associated with MJ.

    I have had HFS for over 10 years. Resisted Botox until earlier this year. I finally gave in. It has helped me immeasurably. I visit the neurologist every 3 or 4 months. Very helpful in social situations.

    Good luck
