I am coming off of my MS meds. What should I expect?
That is a great question. This depends on many things:
1. Where you are in the course of your disease? Specifically, your age and disease type and level of disability?
2. How active (relapse frequency and MRI activity) was your MS just prior to starting this therapy? How active has your MS been in the past year?
3. What disease modifying treatment you are taking, how long you’ve been on it, and how well have you’ve responded to it? Did you take this DMT as intended adhere poorly to the treatment schedule?
This provides some useful information to guide us in answering your question.
