Immunosuppresed? Sleep a bit easier…

The picture is getting better and better if you are on an immunosuppressant DMT (not all are so if you want to know, check the DMT only video as I can’t recall exactly what is what at the moment https://tinyurl.com/qkvyb23 )

I’ve been on Cladribine but I’m 7 months out of it now so I’m guessing I’m the same as others?

@chezy17 – have you seen the 2nd of the two recent videos with Aaron Boster on the MS Reporters YT channel?

He goes into depth with all the drugs.

@chezy17 I finished Yr1 of cladribine in January. I received a letter from the hospital saying that the period of immunosuppression was for three months following treatment. I was surprised at this

@dominics I’ve just watched it, he said if you’ve had it in the last year so more likely to be at risk. I thought perhaps that with me having finished my year 2 7 months ago, I might have been ok. I am being careful as can be but I still have to do the shopping and take see my mum. I avoid big shops and tend to go to the a smaller one. 🤞 It’s enough, when I get colds it tends to go to my sinus rather than my chest. We will see right 🤷🏻‍♀️?!

Thank you 😊.

@Lea_jefferys

I think it’s when your lymphocytes raise passed one that it means your immune system is getting better, I could be wrong. I just know mine is 1.21 whatever that means? 🙄

A concern in the back of my mind is if our MS DMTs could get raided due to their benefits as they are with hydroxychloroquine…thankfully my friend with Lupus has locked down her supply although she is having to extend it as much as possible

@itsmewithms In the States then they may want to consider defending it with one of these bad boys… https://www.heroesandpatriotsllc.com/trump-collection
