  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Slight
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 300 mg/15 mL Monthly
Advice & Tips: Don't expect this treatment to work quickly. Since I've been on it I still had 3 relapses. Now that I take it regulary every month I feel ok. I mean, I take it every 1st friday of every month and by the end of the month I'm dragging again. I still get weak, sleep alot, and start slurring or stutter when I talk.
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 300 mg/15 mL Monthly
Advice & Tips: After I started taking this drug, I actually regained some function. I have been able to work myself back upto running 10k's. It has been a blessing. For more than a year, the day after the infussion was a great MS day. It was when I would feel my best. By the end of the cycle, I felt the withdrawl. Years later, the energy no longer really noticably spikes or dips. For the last few months, I have had increasing pains in my lower arms to my fingers with most recent pains in my fingers. Odd. Looking at list of possible side effects, I see joint pain listed. I can't say with any certainty the Tysabri causes the joint pain. It is but a guess...still, it is a concern I have that years of use may have a cumulative effect.
Cost: $50-99 monthly
Side effects: Pain in hands
