I didn't mention Harry Z and your attitude is exactly why I don't post on here much.
I was also talking from my personal experience, as one of those rare people who dare to post that my MS is under control, thanks to Rebif. If you look at my post about diet, you'll see that I'm talking only about my experience as MS is idiosyncratic.
Surely though, someone who isn't feeling dreadful and who has had a great result from Rebif, should be permitted to say so, without being criticised by those who haven't bothered to read previous posts.
I've been posting on these boards for over 5 years. They used to be a great place for those who suffer from MS, to discuss their treatments/theories. Now, anyone who comes out from behind the sofa, is jumped upon by people like you.
Ian and several other people have been told over and over by Harry Z that their drugs can't work and that the pharma industry is corrupt. However, we don't live in a country where medicine is run for profit.
Our experience is different. We have to take what we can get.
Back in 2000, people in the UK couldn't get access to DMDs at all, with rare exceptions.
Harry Z isn't correct. I will go back to not posting and keep well away from people who like to make extremely rude remarks and attacks about those who dare to try to swim against the current.
This board should NOT be a place where those who are on drug therapies are told to shut up.
This thread is about oral DMDs - not about CCSVI. No need for HarryZ to post the usual negative comment - post it somewhere else Harry (please don't respond to this post).
For those interested in CCSVI - no need to post.
For Harold Zanin - no need to post.
Your post is not interesting. What the hell has Chinese leather sofas got to do with oral DMTs for MS!! If you get some sort of kick from licking sofas you should reallly keep it quiet.
Any more whacky posts like this and I'll be having a word with JimmyLegs about removing your moderator badge. Maybe you should reduce you daily Sativex intake?
In future - keep to the topic. You're skating on thin ice.
This bromley character's behavior is quite disturbing, and I hope he feels better soon; nevertheless, TIMS should not tolerate his shocking (and sad) behavior.
NHE, thank you for your very interesting and relevant posts. Having as much information as possible about the chemicals used in DMDs and about the ethics of pharmaceutical executives is important for patients, except, of course, for those patients who blindly trust the pharmaceutical industry:
Just last month, Merck Serono, Inc., makers of Movectro, which is the OP's DMD of interest, paid a whopping $44.3 MILLION fine
for having paid doctors to push Rebif on patients. Talk about unethical! How many patients were duped into injecting Rebif? With such shockingly unethical behavior like this toward pwMS, who knows what chemicals they're really putting in Movectro.
I don't care about Big Pharma. All I want is to slow down/stop the MS and I really hate it when people who don't have MS tell me that what I'm taking doesn't work. Oh yes it does.
I'm glad your DMD is working for you; however, for those pwMS not as fortunate as you, Harry offers a very calm, highly intelligent, and well-reasoned voice. I'm sure you must feel some compassion for all those less fortunate than you, and I'm also sure you know that Harry never said your DMD doesn't work for you.
Harry, keep posting.
TIMS needs more posters like you.
