Other than making me a "junkie" for the treatment I am extremely happy with how my body responds to the infusions ever 30 days usually after about 25 days I feel the need to get infused by the 30th day I am so fatiqed,memory loss.etc....I wised I did not have to wait the full 30 days

I recently received my first infusion on Dec17 and will be looking forward to getting my 2nd on Jan14, other than feeling very tired all the time, the medication I believe will begin to show some difference as the infusions increase...

Was on rebif (2-3 relapses per yr), then Copaxone(7 relapes in 8 mo). Didn't know about 6 mth period of waiting for Copaxone to kick in. Put on Tysabri, 0 relapes in 10 months so far. Works immediately, safe to use. Other than regular numbness I've always had, I feel the same I did before my MS diagnosis.

Comment:
I have been on Tysabri for 15 months. I get no side effects( as I did for 8 years on avonex) I had been hospitilized two times in three months prior to my infusions. I am not dancing in the street but I have not gotten worse. Something avonex could not do for me.
