Tysabri / Copaxone combo

As a major shareholder in Teva and Biogen, this will make Harry Z very happy - a combo trial of tysabri + copaxone. Harry has managed to talk both of these drugs down which have seen the share prices fall in both companies - crafty Harry then bought up more shares at low prices.

Do you hear him denying it? No - he's enjoying another cruise with his lady friend off the coast of Cuba. ...

WORKING DURING TREATMENT

I MAY HAVE TO GO THROUGH A ROUND OF 3 DAY IV SOLUMEDROL SOON FOR OPTIC NEURITIS.

MY QUESTION IS, HAVE ANY OF YOU ACTUALLY WORKED WHILE BEING ON THIS STUFF? IS IT POSSIBLE TO DO IT AND FEEL OK?

I STARTED WORKING FULL TIME IN SEPTEMBER. I HAVE A LAID BACK JOB. NO OFFICE WORK. I AM FULLY ABLE EXCEPT FOR MY EYE ISSUE.

Goodbye Rebif - Hello Tysabri!!!

I posted this on the Rebif thread also:

Went to my Neuro yesterday for a check-up after 9 months on Rebif.

I have tried to be upbeat and positive but some days I just want to cry. I have a constant fever and I am so fatigued I can hardly move. Well he took one look at me yesterday and said it's time for a change.

My options as far a drug therapy are:

Arkansans new on site.

My wife has MS but she is a Luddite so I handle the computer stuff. We recently (3 yrs) moved from Las Vegas to 15 acres in very rural northern Arkansas. Best move we've ever made.

Betaseron Available / 45 single use packs

Hi, I'm a newbie to the site. My wife is the one w/MS but she is a confirmed Luddite so I do the computer stuff. Wish we'd heard of/found this site long ago. Anyhow, to get to the point. She'd been on Betaseron for about 14 years. Unfortunately over the last 2 or 3 years the tissue beneath the injections sites suddenly and completely broke down & it was no longer a viable treatment.

What are the rules for medical articles?

Situation

I find an article out of a journal somewhere and I print it and link to it in a later post. Then one day I find that the link doesn't work anymore. So there is no article there when folks go to see the support for the observations I've posted about.

Rules?

I have a copy of the article that I had previously linked. But, I can't clearly find a new copy of the ...

1 gram prednisone oral in lieu of IV solumedrol

Mr. Neuro just gave me an Rx for 1g oral prednisone x 3 days. this is in lieu of the IV steroids. IT was done this way for a number of reasons one of is that I just had a course of infusions for the Campath trial and they had a tough time with the external lines because my skin is "tough" and my veins like to roll. Whatever -

Anyway, 200mg prednisone 5 X ...
