What Do You Think The Best MS Medication Is Out There Relapsing Form Of Ms?

I have been on Extavia for a long time and I’m having a hard time getting it right now. They are saying it’s on back order and can’t give me a time frame of when I can get it. So I have a video conference with my dr tomorrow afternoon to determine what should be done. I see all these different medications out there now and don’t know a thing about them.

The one that works for you. I am on Copaxone which gets reviews. But I’ve been on this nearly 7 years with no new lesions and no relapses.

I agree with @A MyMSTeam Member -- the one that works best for you!

@A MyMSTeam Member > I was on Copaxone before the Extavia and it didn’t work for me.

Same for me. I stuck myself with those needles for over a year before my neurologist told me they weren't working and I had significant new lesions. Statistics *scream* that Copaxone does *nothing* for about 1/3 of the people sticking themselves with those needles.

The new view towards MS is to use the most effective DMT as possible. That, of course, depends on what your neurologist knows and is comfortable with and what your immoral, for-profit insurance corporation's "death panel" (spit) will approve.

i was copaxone lost my funding; have used aubagio. they have assitance programs; they all do. but if supply is your problem, there are close relatives (copied straight off the internet, so beware):

Is Betaseron the same as Rebif?
Avonex / Rebif and Betaseron / Extavia are different brands of the same generic entity, interferons beta-1a and b respectively, recombinant forms of human interferon proteins. Plegridy is a PEG (poly-ethylene glycol)-attached form of interferon beta-1a.

I was on Techfedera till insurance wouldn’t pay for it now I’m on Vumerity. I was going to switch to another drug but I haven’t had new lesions in 2 years so Neurologist won’t change me.
