Can I eat anything before a Tysabri infusion?

It may sound like a silly question, but I never thought to ask!

My first infusion is on Monday afternoon… I’m sure somebody will know the answer?



Yes you can eat what you want it doesn’t make any difference.

It’s a good idea to make sure you’re well hydrated before you go as it’s easier for them to insert the cannula so make sure you drink lots of water

Good luck with tysabri, I hope it works for you


Yes no problem eating sometimes I even eat while having the infusion and like Chris said if you can try and drink before the infusion it really helps them insert the the cannula.


I forgot to say if you use Facebook you could join the UK Tysabri users group you’ll get all the answers you’ll need its a closed group so none of your friends will ever see your posts just the members its a really good group.
