Fingolimod and steroids

Hi Just a quick question. Does anyone know if you can take steroids with Fingolimod? Just forgot to ask. I know you’re not supposed to relapse with it but just wanted to know.

Hi,you can still have relapses if on Gilenya.I don’t know why you think that it stops all relapses.Whovere told you this is wrong.You can also take steroids when on Gilenya.I have had new symptoms whilst on Gilenya,but they weren’t classed as relapses.My doctor said that if there were new lesions it would mean taking IV steroids again,but the MRI didn’t show any changes.Hope this helps.Take care,Brenda x

Thanks for that Brenda That’s really helpful
