3 days before taking this treatment, I had a mild relapse which was not that bad but still noticable. The neuro put me on Gilenya as arranged and requested I take steroids in tablet form to deal with the relapse.
However, the relapse got worse even while taking the steroids for a week. A week later my condition had deteriotated all while taking the Gilenya. I admitted myself into hospital with a copy of an email from my neuro to have steroids via infusion.
The steroids via infusion usually work great but because I was still taking the Gilenya the steroids were not helping like it should. I would get better in the evening then after I took Gilenya in the morning, things would worsen again. So after getting out of hospital I stopped taking the Gilenya after consulting with the neuro.
Sigh, another treatment that does not work. Only the Tysabri at this stage! Will have to wait another 3 mths before going on that again.
