Crying and Tysabri?

Postby jrose15 » Mon Apr 22, 2013 5:17 pm

I am 18 and was diagnosed with MS last August. I had my first infusion of Tysabri about 3 weeks ago. I don't know if i'm just being paranoid, but I've noticed that lately I've been crying at the drop of a hat and have become very emotional. The reason i'm posting this is because I am not an emotional person at all and rarely cry. I don't know if this might be an effect of the Tysabri? If anyone else has had a similar experience please let me know!

Welcome to ThisIsMS. I'm sorry that you have to deal with such a crappy disease at such a young age. I don't know if Tysabri can affect your emotions as you describe. However, it could just be the MS itself. Here's a page from the MS society that might be helpful. ... index.aspx

I'm surprised, that at 18, your doc has prescribed Tysabri. This drug is normally not used on new MS patients unless all the other medications have proven ineffective. As well, long term Tysabri use can be quite problematic. It can cause numerous side effects but I'm not sure that crying due to emotions is one of them. Something obviously you should be discussing with your doctor.

Here is a link concerning the side effects. You should discuss what you are seeing with your doctor. Make sure he checks your liver enzymes.
