FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: TYSABRI

User Comments:


For Multiple Sclerosis “Before my treatment is due, I get so much pain in my shoulders, shoulder blades, arms and hips/leg. I also become really irritable, and erratic moods. This happens about 1 to 1.5 weeks before its due. I have been wondering if tysabri is addictive because its like my body is screaming for it. According to my MRIs my legions are shrinking so its doing something in the background. However, I’ve either gotten worse since being on tysabri or its progression. MRIs say stable, go figure.”

For Multiple Sclerosis “changing to ocrevus in 2 weeks after 12 tysabri’s. I had relapse around 9th infusion. My bloods came back JC positive (was told negative initially), MRI had increased lesion load. Also found it never lasted the 4 weeks. The pain and fatigue came back about 10 days prior to next dose initially but that became longer to the extent iIwas lucky to have a few good days after dose.”

For Multiple Sclerosis “I’ve used Tysabri for past couple years. Prior to Tysabri, I used couple other drugs but nothing worked as well as Tysabri. My wish would be to take it every 21 days instead of 28 days. The 4-5 days before infusion time can be very painful with head & body aches accompanied by brain fog I don’t understand the risks for a 21 day infusion, but I’m willing to learn”

For Multiple Sclerosis “I have been on this medication for just about a year and think it is wonderful the only issue is about a week before my infusion I have a real increase in symptoms I wish that there was a 21-day option because 28 is too far”
