hi gogators, welcome to the site!

That's an interesting (and powerful) combo-- how have your results been? You may want to post this thread in the "Regimins" forum so that people who are considering the same can ask you for information or compare notes.

Welcome again!

i have been doing pretty well. before the combo i was just on avonex. i was hospitalized twice within 6 months. did the IV steroid thing a couple of times. then my doctor wanted to try something new & different before we went the chemo route.

so the last 5 years i have been on both drugs. the side effects not a problem especially considering where i was. i have not had to take a steroid in over 2 years. i still have my problems & flare ups, but they have not been near as bad as before.

i work full time & get around pretty good. when i am very weak i try & get my rest as much as i can. that unfortunately i am not very good at that.

i don't know if people have tried it, but i recomend it highly.
