Well I have been on a Gilenya for 3 months.
No flares or anything. Easiest med I have been on for MS.
My neuro wants 1st blood work between 3 & 4 months.
How often is blood work typically done?

I'm on a schedule of every 6 months for eye exam, liver testing, blood count. So far, everything is fine.

I have been on Gilenya since March 2013 and so far (touch wood!!), everything is ok. No relapses which is brilliant. However I think I am regularly experiencing some of the side effects (low back pain, head aches, nausea & diarrhoea) which can be annoying but I guess things could be worse!
