Just diagnosed

Hi!

Just been diagnosed this Morning with RRMS (Finally), the neurologist didn’t really say much about DMD’s other than to look online with the leaflet he gave me and about PML ect, the MS nurse booked me in for an appointment on a Monday to start treatment. I’ve been looking through online at the different options I prefer the look of infusions than tablets/injections. Is this available to anyone or only people worth certain levels of ms?

Thanks!

Hi

Have a look at https://www.mstrust.org.uk/understanding-ms/ms-symptoms-and-treatments/ms-decisions/decision-aid This will give you details of the different DMDs and the criteria for treatment with each.

If you’re thinking about Tysabri (monthly infusions), chances are you won’t qualify as it tends to be a second line drug, i.e. after a first line drug has failed - meaning that you are still relapsing despite being on a drug. Or you could qualify for it if your MS is categorised as ‘highly active’.
