Decision finally made

Hi everyone,

I’ve been on Tysabri for over 7 years now and unfortunately have had to decide which alternative medication to decide to now start on.

Ocrevus was brought to my attention and after all my researching I chose this as my desired choice.

I had one loot at Mavenclad then realised that fir some reason it was a tablet a day, every day, for a lengthy time.

I then remembered that this is not the case at all.


Ocrevus – 4-5 hour infusion every six months, OR

Mavenclad – 1 tab a day for 5 days, then same again a couple of weeks later then same again a year on then that’s it.

No brainer.

I’ll soon be starting, if all turns out ok, on Mavenclad soon.

I’ll be sure to update on here.

Wish me luck please, it’s one heck of a massive decision.

Thank goodness I’m not a worrier.

I’ve just finished the second lot of tablets and I can honestly say it was a doddle. I was on avonex and taking mavenclad was so much easier that injecting every week! I had minimal side effects and even went back to work today after a long absence.
Good luck with it🙂
