Ocrevus vs. Lemtrada

Hello all!
I was diagnosed 20 years ago, and I’m currently having to decide between Ocrevus and Lemtrada. I have run the gamut of Avonex, Betaseron, Tysabri round one, Rebif, Betaseron and back to Tysabri. I recently tested positive for the JC Virus, and my doctor tells me I need to choose between Ocrevus or Lemtrada.

I joined this group because it was so helpful to me to get a UK perspective. I lived in the U.K. for many years, and feel that opinions outside the American pharmaceutical perspective are very good. Does that make sense? 😉

For the first time in 20 years I am very scared. I do enjoy my cocktail, and I do enjoy my life. I would like to know your thoughts on Ocrevus vs. Lemtrada that I won’t hear from a network paid commercial telling me that something horrible “may” happen. Like cancer, or kidney failure, or more PML death speak…

Trying to keep a stiff up American lip.

Hi @ashley_brennand_campion .

Lemtrada is/was on limited use here in Europe due to health concerns. I’m not sure if that issue has been acknowledged in America.
