AUBAGIO: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Multiple Sclerosis “Diagnosed 3 years ago- now know that I’ve had MS for 30 years. Stopped Copaxone due to awful injection site reactions, then after playing the insurance game, started Aubagio 3 months ago. The side effects of these medications are worse than the disease!! I stopped taking it a week ago due to horrific muscle/ joint pain, daily pounding headaches, blurry vision, diarrhea, ear congestion, neuropathy in hands/feet and extreme fatigue. I’m supposed to call my Dr in 2 weeks to discuss how I feel after 3 weeks off. Seriously, these meds that are designed to help are poison! I’m going to stay off the “preventives” and continue my clean eating and aquatic exercise.”

For Multiple Sclerosis “I was diagnosed with MS in 2005 and started on Rebif in 2006. Side effects included weird cravings, depression and massive nodules at the injection sites. Which didn’t help as I am also diabetic and was running out of places to inject. Had four relapses. Then changed to Aubagio last year. 1 month in I got Chickenpox from severe immune suppression. 3 months in my hair fell out, by the handfulls. 6 months in I started getting burning hands and feet (?Aubagio/?diabetes). Am currently having a relapse, but not as bad as before. My thighs have recovered completely. My hair is thicker than ever. And I’ve stopped taking my antidepressants. Only thing is the burning, which comes and goes. Love the packaging! Helps me remember if I’ve taken them.”

For Multiple Sclerosis “I started Aubagio 2 weeks ago. I’ve been on Copaxone (horrible site reactions days after injection), Avonex (serious gastric issues and no progress in regression), Gilenya, (horrible headaches for the time on it and also showed not to be working.), Tecfidera (found I have tested positive for JVC with high risk for PML). Which brings me to Aubagio. I take it at night with some tylenol every other day and have had NO side effects. It may be to early to tell about the thinning hair, but I do drink, 3 times a week, protein shake “muscle milk, 25mg protein and take biotin. I have felt great. Also, the damage to my hands (nerve pain and stiffness) seems to be letting up. If it still feels this good by the end of Nov will let Aubagio know”

For Multiple Sclerosis “I have had MS since 99. Been on shots and different pills. So far Aubagio has been really good. I take at night so I don’t have side affects,I also take 2 Tylenol PM with it to keep any issues away, works great! Just don’t like the hair loss..will be addressing with hair tech. The PM pill really does help, please try for the people still in it. Bladder,I had fix years ago so I don’t have issues with that. Please try…”

For Multiple Sclerosis “I’ve had MS since I was fifteen, I’m fifty-four now. I started taking Aubagio in June. Since then I’ve had frequent diarrhea, extreme swelling of my ankles and feet because of water retention, a large kidney stone (1 cm), probably not from the Aubagio, but still, an antibiotic resistant bladder infection which led to two plus week hospitalization, my toenails are falling off, leading to cellulitis, and a cold (I hadn’t had a cold in three years). I truly believe that this medication will kill me if I don’t stop taking it and I plan to find another MS medication.”
