Also, I will soon recieve my 47th infusion and have noticed depression is progressively getting worse-anyone notice that,after taking Tysabri for an extended time?

I have not taken tyrsabri myself but I do know that some medications will cause a significant amount of weight gain without any change in diet. I have had that happen to me before. I know that's not good for helping a persons depression either. Hang in there and remember you are not alone. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Yes I have! I have been on Tysabri since June 09 and have been slowly gaining weight. I am up to 30 pounds gained now (in 9 months). At first I just thought that maybe I was finally feeling better and therefore eating more food, but now I am thinking that it is from the Tysabri. I have been really watching what I ate since January and have still gained 3 pounds. I would love to hear if others have noticed this too.

I noticed weight gain since starting Tysabri. No other changes in diet, but I'm not in any pain, so I guess I can't complain. I've been on Tysabri since it first came on the market. I cannot remember how many infusions I've had. Don't have any depression... hope your feeling better..
You can write to me if you'd like to.

My nxt infusion would've been my seventy eighth infusion. Contracted JC Virus and they ended it right away. I did notice gradual persistant weight gain that seemed impossible 2 shed. Idk it goes up it goes down but I'm trying 2 keep it down. Need more consistacy with my eating habits and light to moderate excercise as permitted by my limitations. I'm sure it's manageable, but it takes some commitment. I'm not running marathons, which maybe one day I will be 2. What little movement I can do, I will for my well being and a lil vanity, just a little only to make me feel good about who I c looking back@me.
