Advice & Tips
I had great improvement in all my MS symptoms, there were very few side effects. I was in the clinical trial for 3 years and continue for 1 more year in the extension phase. This drug has given me back my life. Minimal side effects, no hassle to take, have not yet had a relapse in over 3 years and was relapsing every 3 months prior to joining the trial.
