No Strength After Novantrone Treatment

My wife just started Novantrone.
Her MS has been getting much worse for 3 years now. She doesn't have relapses or remission, she has constant, daily problems walking. She falls alot even with her walker. She is in a freefall towards a wheelchair and she's only 38. The neurologist started her on Novantrone after several other drugs failed to do anything.
She got her first Infusion on Friday. All was fine. Saturday morning she could ...

Started Novantrone

I started Novantrone this past week. My MS was progressing so fast, and after 18 months of Betaseron, my doctor felt it was time to add another drug. I am 37 years old, and I am physically healthy--weight, bp, etc.

I would love to hear from people who have taken this drug, and I have noticed strands of my hair are starting to fall out. Losing my hair is a small price to pay to ...

Risks of Novantrone

My boyfriend Scott's neurologist recommends that he go on Novantrone. He has been on Betaseron in the past but had bad injection site reactions. Would he be better off on Novantrone? I hear it's pretty risky.

Why Novantrone?

I went to see my neurologist yesterday, I go as infrequently as possible. I told him I went off my Avonex in December after nine years. I proceeded to tellhim I was considering LDN and he almost freaked. Now in the last nine years I've progressed nicely from walking without assistance to wheelchair bound. Never once did my Doctor tell me about Novantrone but now that I'm off Avonex and possibly considering LDN, he tells ...

Considering Novantrone

My Doc recommeded that I go on Novatrone due to worsening symptoms. He gave me some info on it, and one thing I noticed is that due to the lowered white blood cell count after treatment, it is recommeded that I wear a mask to protect me 10 - 21 days after infusion.

Has anyone else experienced this? I guess it makes sense, but I really don't want to walk around like Michael Jackson for ...
