DMT choices

Hello all.

Well, things are moving forwards and I’m currently tucked up in bed nursing the post dural headache from Saturday-wowsers, it’s been phenomenal!!!
I’m looking through the info that the Neuros gave me to consider; Lemtrada, Tysabri, Ocrevus and Mavenclad.

Ocrevus and Mavenclad are the two that I feel would be more tolerable from a lifestyle point of view-less constant monitoring/appointments etc.
With Mavenclad, I see that there are two courses of treatment, with no treatment in years 3 & 4. Does the course then start again in the 5th year or is that it after 4 years? I can’t seem to find the answer to that anywhere. I’m presuming with Ocrevus that it rolls on every 6 months?!

I’ve had a look at other posts about the various treatments and the journeys people are on, and have found them so useful. Thank you 😎

Rach.🎷

@rach_ls , the jury is still out about the Mavenclad protocol for year 5. There is not enough data for anyone to make a judgement :-

@stumbler. Thanks for that signpost. I must’ve not taken that bit in 🙈 If I choose that particular DMT, then they’ll probably know by then whether to continue it or not?!

@rach_ls , yes, in a year or two, they’ll have the data to make that decision.
