Question about treatment options for CIDS

Postby ejohnson » Thu Nov 16, 2006 2:32 pm

I'm not sure if anyone will be able to help me out with this or not, but I'm looking into which of the MS drugs you can take if you have not had a confirmed diagnosis (CDMS) of MS? I know someone can be labeled as CIDS which means they have had 1 symptom and a MRI, but they are not yet labeled CDMS.

I know you can take Avonex if you are CIDS, but I wasn't sure which other medications are options?

You can take Rebif as well. I fit that criteria, and they prescribed Rebif for me right away.

Yes, I do mean CIS (Clinically Isolated Syndrome). I guess even if you are CIS you still have the same options as someone who is CDMS.

Thanks!

Not to be in the least mean spirited but she would rather not dwell on MS if she doesn't have to and since it's already my long term obsession I guess it's accurate to say that my obsession enables her NOT to think about the whole thing any more than necessary.

John is the same he says MS is to stressful and since he isn't supposed to be stressed he hands it to me to deal with. As long as I don't show fear or freak out he keeps pretty relaxed. It would also take him the best part of an hour to type this many words as he refuses to learn the keyboard or computer for that matter. If he needs something copied and printed he gets our 6 year old grandson to run it off if I'm out. Also at this time John is feeling so good he figures maybe they were mistaken so he takes his supplements and follows his diet just to humor me he says. I don't really think he would want to see his thoughts out there in front of him as it would likely bring it to close to home for him. Denial really has a positive ring to it don't you think. :wink:
John was diagnosed Jan 2005. On lipitor 20mg .On Copaxone since July 4,2005. Vitamin D3 2000iu-4000iu (depending on sunshine months)June 10 2005(RX::Dr. O'Connor) Omega 3 as well Turmeric since April 2005. Q10 60mg. 1500mg liquid Glucosamine Nov 2005.

You are likely right and I don't care as long as he doesn't feel sad or less of himself as he is the exact same to me. Now you are making me cry thinking about this so it's likely me in DENIAL.

Okay, I'll fill in for Robbie's work.

" Say, Bob. Whats with the parasite obsession, why did you become interested in autoimmune disease anyhow. "

Actually, I've been wanting to ask Bob that for a while, I'm rather intrigued and I would gladly offer my guts to helminth if there was an MS trial.
