Here is My Question:
I am scheduled to begin Tysabri on Monday and today is Thursday. Do I continue taking my current medication Aubagio up until my infusion appointment?
You should speak with your neurologist. I put my patients through a cholestyramine elimination protocol when transitioning away from aubagio. Also, it is not recommended to be on combination therapy for MS. Not undergoing the elimination protocol would effectively be getting combined therapy since Aubagio can be detected in the body for an extended period of time after stopping (up to 2 years).
