Not using Medication...

Now it has been a while since I have had an injection. I was on Betaseron but the first generation of injections, Avonex, Betaseron, Copaxone, and Rebif, each have a lousy effacy.

I have a week to go before my neuro appointment so I hope to get a second generation drug and for it to be a pill or tablet. The second generation also has twice the effacy.

Hey guy! I'm using Tefedera now and I love it. It's easy breezy to take and doesn't have any side affects (for me). Wish you all the luck when you see your doctor. Just keep taking a DMD, don't go off.

I am now in a study for SPMS. The study is for 3-5 years! I hope this gives me some relief as
I have been on 3 out of the 4 CRAB drugs. I now am only on Ampyra for walking! This drug is the sister to Glyenia (sp) that was approved for RRMS. Good luck in your search. Let us know what you and your Doctor decides!

I had VERY positive results on Tysabri before I tested positive for JC Virus. I am now using Tecfidera with only heartburn now & again as a side effect. I have gotten many positive results from it.

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
