WHen should I stop taking Ocrevus?
Here is My Question:
When do I need to take action to come off Ocrevus if it’s not working and I’m deteriorating at much more aggressive rate since I’ve gone on Ocrevus. What are my next options then?
When to stop Ocrevus depends on several factors including your age, disease type, disability level, prior treatments and complications while taking Ocrevus. You would benefit from an evaluation by an MS specialist to help you with this decision. If it helps, I typically encourage my patients to set specific goals before initiating a treatment. This makes it easier to determine when it is time to stop treatment or consider another treatment. Many of the options after treatment with Ocrevus include participation in various ongoing clinical trials. Your MS specialist can tell you how to find out about clinical trials in your area for patients with your disease characteristics.
