Who Is Taking The New Ms Medication Ocrevus?

Who Is Taking The New Ms Medication Ocrevus?

How is it? Where they do the infusions and how often? In a doctor's office or hospital?

I am. It is the 4th MS medication I have tried. I have done the initial where they split the dose over time. My 2nd infusion is in Dec and will be the full dose. The initial went well as far as no side effects but I did have an exasperation and lost the use of my left hand. Thankfully it came back but a lot less strength in my left hand. Lucky I am right handed. But I must say I do not miss giving myself shots. I hated and dreaded each one.

O wow 6 months apart .. That would be amazing. I wish you all the best! I am very curious about how this drug works in the long term as it is a new drug. I really hate doing my shots every week but now since pregnant i get a little break but still relapsing ..go figure..i was wondering if switching would work better for me after pregnancy
