Morning Hrisimir, I’m sorry I really wish I could offer you some advise but it’s an area of MS I know nothing about. I hope someone comes on to the forum later that can be of more use but it the meantime welcome to our little group. Nina x

In the UK us PPMSers are not put on a DMD, so you might not get any useful advice on this board. Why you are being given a drug that prevents relapses by a third (on average) for a condition that doesn’t get relapses, is another question.

I hope you find the answer you need.

Hi Hrisimir and welcome…

Sorry I also have not heard of the drug and know nothing about it, but as Whammel points out, PPMS does not respond to DMD (disease modifying drugs).

Or is the drug related to infertility? I don’t quite understand… is it another drug that you are having by injection?

Sorry no better advice… but you could try posting on Everyday Living to see if someone there has used the drug.

Take care and please come back on here… we are a nice little gang and always happy to welcome a new member.

It’s a brand of beta interferon.

Thank You all ,it was helpful,i will try to find out this somewhere else.

I am sure I will be here again.x

Hi,

I am sorry for you as you seem to be so worried. Did you know that you can be reffered to a genetic councellor? These are the experts. Please speak to your MS nurse, as i feel sure she can get you started.

I wish you all the luck in the world.

Jane…

Sorry misread your letter and gave you the wrong advise. I would still get your MS nurse on board.
