New Leassion Change of DMT?

Hi guys,

again I am reaching out for some support from the community. After discovering that my lessions have trippled in 4 years, well after some discussing around with my doctor …we decided to probably change from avonex (was also causing some midld depression probably) to another med that would tackle the evolution of lessions and remissions. I have had no remission on Avonex for 4 years now since I am on the drug, but in paralel the lessions did evolve, so I do not know what choie to make. The next poposed drug would be Tysabi or Copaxone. So what experiences have you had. Wht do you think is it better to switch or just monitor evolution for one more year ad then switch?
What do you think? Any advice is greatly appreciated!

@ioanaioko , the appearance of additional lesions suggests that the Avonex is not working for you and that you need a more effective treatment.

There’s quite a few options these days. Can I suggest you make use of this tool, to understand what is available and how effective they are :-
