What is the best DMD to go on in your opinion

My son who was diagnosed 7 years ago was on one dug that had really bad side effects so turned him right off of any. Now he is starting to have stuff happen and I finally talked him into trying another. Problem is I have only been on betaseron and now being secondary, I know nothing about which DMD he should try......any advice?

The majority of medications don't work overnight. One needs to stay on them for a few months. Stay patient and positive. Many hugs.

Been on Avonex, Rebif, Tecfidera, and now Copaxone. Copaxone is the only one that has not given me ANY side effects aside from a bit of pain after injecting that is easily ignored if I get myself focusing on other things. I was also told that Copaxone is not only the oldest drug, but also the safest. I had progression in terms of relapses on Avonex, a bit on Tecfidera. I believe I am now secondary progressive, but haven't been on Copaxone long enough (3 months) to be sure if it is being effective.

I've been on Avonex, Copaxone, Tecfidera, and now Aubagio. With Avonex, I was on it for 6 months and didn't notice any benefit, so went on Copaxone. I was only on Copaxone for about 3 months because it affected me mentally ( happens to about 1%). Then I went on Tecfidera but had horrible side effects. I also tested positive for the JC virus so I definitely didn't want to go back on Tecfidera. I'm now on Aubagio and have been for 8 months with no side effects. It's really hard to know which drug is better because everyone reacts differently to each one. Good luck!
