Sorry, i'm new here. I can't turn away after reading your post.
My neurologist had prescribed me once with imuran (azathioprine). He called it a supplement. So i trusted him, n i took it one tablet. Then i felt bad, my body became stiff from my back to the legs. Then i stopped taking it immediately n searched on the web about imuran. After finding out that it was not a supplement but a medication used for patients who have kidney transplantation to suppress their immune system so the patient's body would accept the kidney being transplanted.
Oh my God...i never thought my neurologist could give me such a horrific medication with its negative side effects.
Just listen to your body, if one drug is not suitable for u (u know it when ur body feel not good) then don't use it. Seek another medication or treatment that will suit u n could improve ur symptoms.
Beside DMDs, there's still another second line treatments for MS such as IVIG or plasmapheresis.
I know a pwMS who can't tolerate steroid n Rebif, instead using plasmapheresis to help her with her exacerbation. And i have a friend w/ MS who's using IVIG to maintain her remission phase.
I hope u'll find one that makes u better. Best wishes for u.
