Hi @ellie_jones,

I was diagnosed with RRMS last November. It’s true that it’s not the same road for everyone, and what works for one person won’t work for another. My neurologist has been pretty good at providing options and then letting me research them (he also gives me pamplets, booklets, etc.). We usually discuss potential options quickly, he makes his recommendation and then he’ll give me a few weeks to research and think about all my options.

Originally, I was prescriped Copaxone 20mg each day. We recently discovered it wasn’t effective for me (even though he has other patients in similar RRMS states and it’s working for them), and now we’re moving me to Ocrevus.

Definitely do your research, weigh the pros and cons, and make an informed decision. Don’t let them push you to something you really don’t want to take.

Hope all goes well!
