Hmmm. OK, I know the forum search doesn’t work very well, if at all, but does anybody ever look at the news and articles on this site, I wonder? There is a link to the news article about it right from the home page of everyday living. It’s here: http://www.mssociety.org.uk/ms-news/2013/09/new-daily-tablet-licensed-people-relapsing-remitting-ms I do recommend looking at the site news from time to time, because not only does it answer a lot of questions like this, but you can be fairly sure the information is correct.

AUBAGIO- Thanks Tina - yes l for one - rarely look at these pages - but l will now. And thanks to Anna for bringing it to our attention.

Well - it looks good for people with RRMS - impressive results. Now comes the long wait whilst NICE - look into the ‘cost effectiveness’ - never mind how much good it might do you - it all comes down to the money. For a tablet a day - it looks a better option then many of the dmd’s. Could be good news for many.

Alas, l am SPMS - and as usual all l get told is ‘You have the wrong type MS’ - or ‘You have had MS too long’ well l do agree with the latter.
