I’ve heard that you can get Botox for hyperhidrosis (i.e. Botox for excessive sweating). Is this experimental or is it FDA-approved? Does it work?

A: Botox works for excessive sweating

Botox has been FDA approved for excessive armpit sweating (hyperhidrosis) since 2004.  It usually requires around 50 units per side and can last up to one year.  Patients are typically quite happy with the results.
