  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Multiple Sclerosis)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 300 mg/15 mL Monthly
Advice & Tips: I thought this treatment worked great, no relapses, no MRI changes after 33 doses. Due to the unknown risk of developing PML after 2 years on the drug , 2 neurologists suggestd I change treatments for safety reasons. No 100% effective treatment for PML. So risk vs benefit became too high.
Cost: < $25 monthly
