aubagio

hello shift.msers, does anyone else on here use aubagio please? I started it 2 weeks ago, haven't noticed anything YET but I assume it'll be building up inside me still and side effects may start. After self-injecting Rebif for 13+ years I am finding it difficult to break my routine. Injection nights are empty now - I'm not complaining but it will take quite a lot of time to 'forget'. I mwas SHOCKED at just howsmall the aubagio tablet is. As I've said, so far so good!!!

Hi @edbowes I started on Aubagio a week ago and I too haven't noticed any changes yet .... Only thing I can say is I seem to feel Nauseous a lot of the time and my hair is thinning.

@jamieh

I started Aubagio about the same time you did @edbowes . I still haven't felt anything (that's probably a good thing). I have noticed my thinning hair tho, but i'm a guy so it doesn't really matter. -jamie

@Naim

Stumbler

@Stumbler

@naim , I am taking MSsential and am into my second month. I can't say I've noticed anything dramatic, but it seems to be a fairly comprehensive supplement. :wink:

@Naim

howcome you not on treatment @stumbler? have you been on any treatment before?

Stumbler

@Stumbler

@naim , I'm considered to be SPMS now, so DMDs wouldn't do anything for me, allegedly! I was on Betaferon for 5 years, 2005-2010.

@Naim

@stumbler do you have cortsone treatment if you happen to get a relapse ? or do you know the triggers quite well? i hope you dont mind me asking you these questions. really appreciate that your replies.

Stumbler

@Stumbler

@naim , I've had steroids in the past. But, I shouldn't need them now. Being SPMS, I shouldn't get any defined relapses........ I don't mind answering questions. I have nothing to hide. :wink:

Naim

@Naim

@stumbler so what do u get when you in SPMS

Stumbler

@Stumbler

@naim , well, Secondary Progressive MS is described here :- http://www.mssociety.org.uk/what-is-ms/types-of-ms/secondary-progressive-spms For my part, names of the different types of MS are just names. MS is just a pain in the butt, whichever variant you have......

Jamie, Aubagio is pretty ace I think, I have had a small relapse but, to be honest, I'm pretty certain it was the flu jab that started it. Only a small one as they go, dizzy, balance awful, weakness down my right side - I had to piut up with it for 2 or 3 weeks but I saw my neurologist and was p[rescribed 5 days of steroids. Nasty things thos steroids but most cleared up. My balance is still a little bit 'off' but I know about it, I can work around it as best as I can. I also think I would have has the relapse anyway, only worse but thanks to the aubagio it never got to bad!!!!! Hope it is going well for you!! Ed
