Comment:
Tysabri has given me much improved quality of life. I have had relapsing remitting MS since 2003. Tysabri involves a trip to the hospital for an infusion every 28 days. It is a very supportive environment to discus symptoms with other patients and concerns with the support nursing staff. My tolerance for heat has greatly improved.
