This drug was approved recently and I am trying it, because out of the 6 other drugs I've been on nothing has worked. So far this is working for me (side effects- none, and I'm not getting worse).

I recently found out that the drug Ocrevus can cause cancer, mainly breadt cancer in women. Have anyone been diagnosed with cancer or was even told that this drug causes cancer? Im angry that i had to find out through social media and not by my doctor or the infusion center.
