Here is My Question:
I have been on Tysabri for 2 years (as of December) and I am JCV positive. My neurologist has told me that he recommends changing drugs in December. I have also been told that I have SPMS. My mobility and fatigue have declined in the last few years but I have no new lesions. What do you feel is the best drug to take now?
Recommending an individual drug or treatment requires intimate knowledge of your personal characteristics as they pertain to your MS and this knowledge can only be gained, at a minimum, through the medical consultation process. At present we do not provide medical consultation.
We can provide general information and broad recommendations that reflect our approach to decision making but the individual decision must be made by you in consultation with your MS specialist.
