I have Highly Active RRMS and have been on Copaxone for 18 months, no serious side-effects. However had 3 clinically siginificant relapses in the last 12 months, my Neurologist has suggested that I move from Copaxone to Fingolimod. I go into the Cardiac Unit on Wednesday to start this off.
I am sure that I will be ok, all the same I am nervous with so many scare storeies about it around. Can the Fingolimod users of the forum give me some feedback?
- How did your first dose go?
- What should I expect?
- What are your most common side effects?
- Pro points / negative points?
This will help me adjust, I am looking forward to stopping injections, I am not looking forward to potentially a glut of new side effects.
