Gilenya Usage History


I was dx'd in October and will be starting Gilenya soon after I complete my pre-med tests (i.e., blood work, EKG, neuro-optholmologice exam, etc.).

Please share your Gilenya experience (safety / efficacy), especially if you were / are in a clinical trial. I will do the same after I start.
