I have the 3 day IV treatment only whne having a severe flare. I have always found it to help. We do the IV at the Dr.'s and I have them just leave the needle in rather then get stuck each time. That is the worst part of the treatment, pain from needle in hand and more limits to mobility. We follow up with the oral Prednisone, usually a 2 to 3 three week course and taper. I don't like the side eff...

DOCTOR AND NURSE COULD NOT FIND VEIN SO THEY HAD ME DRINK THE TWO GLASSES OF THE IV SOLUTION BY MOUTH WHICH CAUSED ME TO GO INTO A SEVERE SEIZURE. CURRENTLY, I STILL CANNOT USE MY RIGHT ARM, RIGHT HAND FINGERS, SPEAK NORMALLY, MOVE MY RIGHT LEG.

I HAVE HAD MS FOR 5 YEARS NOW, AND HAD 3 FLARE UPS IN THAT TIME. THIS THIRD TIME WAS THE WORST FLARE UP. SEVERE TINGLING FROM CHEST UP, LOST CONTROL OF BOTH BOWL AND URINATION CAPABILITIES, BALANCE, WEAKNESS, AND I WAS REALLY USING A WALKER TO GET AROUND. I JUST FINISHED MY SECOND DAY TREATMENT AND I AM ABOUT 80% BETTER. USING CANE NOW, BOWLS AND BLADDER UNDER CONTROL.

I'm now taking my second 3 day, 1 gram infusion. Sept was for eye problems due to the MS and now its overall pain and weakness; both flare ups. other than the after taste (which can be helped with lemon drops) the infusion are good. I go to a very good clinic and the nurses are wonderful with everyone. with flare ups happening so suddenly, they always manage to fit me in at a manageable time. see results after first treatment, with complete clear up by the end of the third treatment.

That is the worst part of the treatment, pain from needle in hand and more limits to mobility. We follow up with the oral Prednisone, usually a 2 to 3 three week course and taper. I don't like the side effects, sleep disruptions, too much energy, mood swings but it does help stop the flare.

I take this every 4 weeks (IV with an in home nurse) and by the time 4 weeks comes up I am ready for this. It does help me to walk with my walker instead of power chair and have more energy,less tired and aches and pains. For about 3 to 4 days my face turns very red and swollen and hot through-out body. Good for about 3 weeks then we start over.
