I’ve been on copaxone for years now. No relapses since beginning so it’s definitely working well. I like how there are no side effects in regards to feeling flu’ish etc because I work full time and very active so it’s caused no life style interference. However, I’ve begun to get those permanent indentations mainly on my thighs and the bruising has become terrible. I truly look like a junky with track marks that won’t go away along with massive welps under my skin for weeks in every place I shoot… read more
Can you rotate to a different site to give your injections? Just a thought…
I was on generic Tecfidera for a year, then I turned 65 and Medicare wouldn’t cover it so they switched me to Vumerity in Dec of 2021. So far no side effects. No new brain lesions on MRI last summer, next one scheduled for June.
Every thing I've seen points to Ocrevus would be my #1 pick. My b cells.not strong enough to support
I started on copaxone but it didn't work well for me (11 months). Been on tecfidera ever since (6 years) and it works great - no new MS activity while I've been on it. There are some side effects, but I've found ways to mitigate them all. Happy to chat more about it if that's helpful! 🧡
I was on Copaxone for 13 years then it stopped working. I have been on Rituxan for 6 1/2 years with no new lesions. Ocrevus is the same as Rituxan but 6 1/2 years ago Europe was giving it and my Insurance company fought it every 6 months for my treatment. Rituxan is $1,500.00 per infusion, Ocrevus is $15,000.00 per infusion and the Insurance company asks him (pleads) will you use Rituxan. Of course. My Neurologist goes to Europe every year because there clinical trials are thousands of patients for several years not like the U.S where they follow 402 patients for 2-3 years. I did try several others in between and Nothing was as easy and effective for me. I have kept a Health Diary since the day I was diagnosed and can always look back and say to my neurologist what worked and what didn’t. I need to put up a new video and my channel about that. As always, MSisBS
