  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 300 mg/15 mL Monthly
Advice & Tips: Give it time, and refrain from taking a lot of other prescribed drugs for pain issues, or over-the-counter treatments for other MS-related physical problems. I believe the purity of the the Tysabri should be kept intact so as not to affect the potency and effectiveness of this treatment. A positive mental attitude and the desire to overcome this illness couldn't hurt, either. I will overcome.
