  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always

    Not at all hard to take
Advice & Tips: This treatment saved me from life in a wheelchair. I would advise anyone who is faced with this option to take it. It makes a huge difference. The lesion in my spinal cord affected my legs this time, so the plasmapharesis definitely made a huge difference, along with acute physical therapy.
