Here is My Question:
Why did my doctor put me on Copaxone and not Tysabri? Is it because Tysabri is more for patients with severe MS?
Treatment choices are made for a variety of reasons and are personalized to the patient. Tysbari can be used in patients with mild, moderate or severe MS based on their profile, their personal preference and risk factors. There are no ‘hard and fast rules’. We encourage everyone to discuss all treatment options with their providers.
