Does anyone have Asthma but take Gilenya

Having had MS now for 23 years and being told i really need to take DMDs, I reluctantly tried different ones. None of them suited me and gave me respiratory and skin problems. I have been offered Gilenya but i keep turning it down, like others I am nervous about trying it. Please can anyone tell me if you have asthma but are taking Gilenya and how you find it. I have been struggling to make a decision because of all the possible serious side effects.

@Nikki , I have seen some MSers across “the pond” who have asthma and take Gilenya.

Any DMD has a risk, so you just need to work with your Neuro for the way forward. You will be closely monitored for any issues, which may make you change treatment course again.

Good luck.

Hi Nikki,
Zero side effects with gylinea, Ms slowed down . My biggest worry is losing my prescription for it due to insurance problems. If you are being offered it you are lucky – go for it!
