May it be daily injections, prescriptions medication via liquid or pill, infusion treatments etc....what can you personally attest to it improving or effecting? Is it a general maintenance of your current condition, prevention of progression or an overall improvement of your symptoms? Please share if you’re inclined. Thank you.
This was a great Question @A MyMSTeam Member! I have no idea how to answer because i was diagnosed on. 4/30/19...i have had both beginner dosages of Ocrevus, completed 2 rounds of physical and occupational therapy, i take amitripline 50 mg, vitamin D 5000 mg daily, 1300 primrose, 5000 mg B-12. Im taking these meds because i have made huge improvements.
When i was on meds, copaxone then rebiff, took them with understanding that they would prevent or reduce severity of relapses. As mri’s attested, ms was active at that time and i believed the injections were necessary to prevent a terrible worsening. Eventually course of ms seemed to change, two consecutive mri’s showed no active lesions, and i made decision to come off dmds, and began to concentrate on removing inflammation, taking vitamin supplements, diet change, exercise. Thats where im at today, no relapses, but dealing with a few ever present symptoms; heat intolerance, leg weakness, balance and memory issues, but overall feel grateful and pretty good
Ocrevus has been a game changer for me. I have been on it since January, no new lesions, plus after my last infusion on August 1st I'm walking without a cane & my gait is better. I also have been taking supplements, calcium, magnesium, vitamin D & MCT oil powder.
So glad so many were willing to respond.
