New to MS

Postby car1031 » Wed Mar 20, 2013 10:52 am

Hi out there. I was diagnosed w/ MS (RRMS) 3 weeks ago and have been educating myself and sharing with direct family members and close friends. I finally completed all of the required "baseline" tests before starting with medication. I've chosen Aubagio to begin this journey with. After talking to the pharmacist yesterday I find that the reality of this diagnosis is just now hitting me (a bit scared).

After hearing and reading about the side effects of Aubagio I have a question .. and hope that I can get some answers from this forum. I appreciate that this forum is here and welcome your support, experience, strength and hope. I hope to lend my support in some way to others too.

My question:
- What is your experience with the time of day you take the med? I'm going to start in the evening after I'm home for the night so that if I have some of the symptoms I've heard of at least I'll be in the comfort of my own home and can go to bed if I choose.

welcome to the forum car :) i don't take ms meds so can't answer your specific question, but there are lots of members here that do take ms drugs. i presume the baseline tests were for monitoring liver function or similar?
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range
