I have multiple sclerosis. Presently receiving Tysabri for 5 months. Concern with the side effects.
You obviously should talk to your Dr first about concerns or side effects. Not sure which specific side effects you are concerned about. I think lots of people on Tysabi are concerned about getting PML but feel the benefits outweight the risk. I have personally been on Tysabri for two years and have had no relapes and no side effects. I recently had an MRI and blood test for antibodies to keep an eye out for progression of my MS. Blood work came back negative for antibodies and the MRI showed some new lesions which was a surprise but the MS didnt show active and no new symptoms. So I told my Dr that as long as I am feeling so great on Tysabri I am not interested in changing treatments. Best of luck with your treatments hope all goes well for you. I have been signing up for online seminars on the tysabri web site which is great and Another website with a great community that has lots on Tysabri info and lots of other MS topics is MSWORLD.org
