Side effects of DMDs

Hello everyone I joined this group about 10 days ago after being diagnosed with rrms. It’s taken 20 years from possible ms/cis with very few relapses that have always been put down to other things ie migraine or shingles. Last year I developed nystagmus and from there, following a third mri was given the diagnosis. I am now left with a decision I did not expect to have to make myself but I am told I need to decide which DMDs I would like to take, avoiding the most effective ones as I don’t have many relapses at the moment. By the way I’m 48 :). Could you please let me know what side effects you suffer from the different treatments as this will factor greatly in my decision. I have found lots of information and inspiration from this group. Thank you everyone, in advance 🙂 oh I am almost symptom free at the moment other than a slightly weaker right leg and fatigue

@moomin71 Have a read of this link. It has a detailed description of the treatment's that you maybe offered and the side effects that could occur from each DMT. Hope it helps. https://www.mstrust.org.uk/about-ms/ms-treatments/ms-decisions-aid
