I had to quit Gilyena due to Macular Edema. My neuro switched me to Aubagio.

I have been on Gilenya about that long. I have antibodies for PML and can't go on Tysabrie. I went of for a bit but got back on doing much better. Waiting on new drug to come out next year.

Think it takes 6 months to be full strength. What would he switch u to? Aubagio I would guess.
