I have been on Tysabri since 4/08. I quit all the other MS meds because of the side effects. Tysabri is the only that I can do. Other than near heart failure at the costs, this has been great. I have a great 2 hours of talk while doing my treatment and have been blessed to have none of the side effects. If you can do it, get on this drug. It has been the best choice for me for MS.

6 infusions and counting w/ no side effects to speak of. Not due for another MRI scan for another 2 months, but the last one showed a "stable brain". I hope that folks remember that everyone's situation is different. What works for one may not work for another. In the MS world... that is an unavoidable reality. Give your treatments time, and have patience to the best of your ability. ... Show Full Comment
