Estriol

If a pregnant MS woman has a vacation from MS during her pregnancy then why are not all MS women patients on estriol? Anyone on here take it? I am trying to find some literature that shows the effectiveness of this drug for MSers. I would also like other people's opinions of this drug for MS.

Cannabis

I was wondering..does anyone think smoking cannabis can actually make your MS worse?

I used to smoke sometimes as a teenager, but then I was diagnosed with R-R MS and I smoked once after starting Avonex and it made my old MS symptoms feel terrible until I slept off the "high".

I didn't smoke for years and years (which wasn't easy as so many of my friends do) but have such bad problems sleeping that ...

I have Multiple Myeloma cancer

I inform you all that unfortunately I am diagnosed positively with Multiple Myeloma cancer after the positive blood samples of Albumin, like other patients who took Gilenya (Fingolimod). This is a cancer of the immunological system which was destroyed because of Gilenya. I already informed Novartis telling them that I do not want any help from them. Novartis started already to run around one’s nose not even signing their own letter: ...

Monthly Treatment vs Orals

I read that soon (1-2 years) a new long acting interferon beta will be on the market that will require only one monthly injection. The adverse events seem to be limited only to the days after the injection so one will be able to have the rest of the month without side effects. If it turns out to be true, would you switch to this new product? Thoughts on a monthly interferon vs the other ...

How to taper a medicine?

Hey fellas;

Not sure I am using the correct word but I'll try...

I am currently taking Methotrexate 3X10mg/week since quite a long time. It possibly helped (no one knows) because since a while I have no more active lesions. Therefore I'd like to reduce its consumption since I believe the less chemical the better.

Question (request for opinion) is: is it better to change the frequency (like 2X10mg/week) or the dosage (still 3Xweek but ...
