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.
