About to start treatment.

Good morning everyone! So I start treatment on July 26th and my doctor wants to start me on a pill form. I wanted to know some of your experiences with Gilenya and or Aubagio. I know these work different for everyone but I’m kind of clueless when it comes to medications and which one to start , I’ve heard that everyone reacts different and it’s kind of ‘trial and error’ ? If you could shed some light on these medications and your experiences with them, that’d be awesome!

Interesting (and exciting)!am curious, why has your doc suggested a pill to you?

He just suggested we start off with that since it’s less aggressive and I haven’t ever been on any treatment so if I need something a bit more aggressive thennnn he will try infusions instead of the pill. But I have constant spasticity or paralysis in my right leg (knee down). And my legs are starting to shake more and more… but I’m also still healing from damaging over half my brain from a fall during my seizure that brought all this to light after the MRI… so there all just a lot of factors and he doesn’t wanna be to aggressive on my immune system just yet basically

Cool. Check out the Aaron Boster YouTube channel regardless. Tons of info, all from a doctor. Super nice guy.

Hi
I am on Aubagio and have been for 3.5 years. It wasn’t really difficult to start taking but I did have loose stools for 2 weeks. At 3-4 months my hair started to thin (evenly not patchy). It all grew back within the year but was a bit alarming at the time. I am very happy with the drug as it doesn’t have any side effects for me at all. I do get my blood tested for liver damage every 3 months but I haven’t had any issues (it was once a month for the first year). Good luck with whatever you pick!
