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.
