    Can't tell (for multiple sclerosis)

    None
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Advice & Tips: my advice is... well I don't know. I felt nothing to be honest, and as I was getting out from a clinical trial because I had a relapse and felt scared, Cellcept didn't make me feel secure. For me, Cellcept didn't help because I felt... nothing at all only fear of getting worse!

  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 500 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: For my RRMS it did not showed any positive signs, although I was going thru a strange relapse, so I got scared and just wanted to get back to Copaxone. Looking back, I think I didn't gave Cellcept a chance to work.
