MS and/or Sjogren's


I'm new to TIMS, but not to MS or other boards. I was dx'd 9 yrs ago with MS. Have tried ABCR and Novantrone, the latter being the only effective in slowing progression. Still, I had lots of other symptoms that couldn't be explained away by MS. My GP is both MD and naturopath with the added virtues of dilligence, ears for listening, and a great big heart. After 7 yrs and about a ...

Medication Questions.....

I'm trying to get a handle on MS medications. Is MS one of those diseases where you have to find the right combination of medications for each individual? The last thing I feel like is having medications make me feel whoopier than I already am!

Other than researching medications/discussing tx options with dr./and pinpointing my worst symptoms/what else can I do to prepare for the options of medications that are out there?

Do most MS'ers ...

Not New to the Board or MS

Hello! I think it’s about time I got my nerve up to post on TIMS. I’ve been a stealth member for almost 3 years now. I check in very often, and I’ve learned A LOT from everyone here. I found this board soon after I was diagnosed in April 2006. Jeez, was that ever a surprise! Before my first and only episode (although looking back, I now recognize other minor flares), I was the healthiest ...

oral treatment podcast

This podcast covers the five oral therapies farthest along the clinical trial process (cladribine, fingolimod, teriflunomide, BG0012, laquinimod). There is some interesting information. I think it was just recorded in the last couple of weeks.

Keep in mind that is sponsored by Teva, so there are a few gratuitous references to copaxone.

Teva to produce biogenerics

Generic-drug maker Teva Pharmaceuticals and contract drug manufacturer Lonza Group have formed a joint venture to make and market copies of biotech drugs, the companies announced Tuesday.

Teva and Lonza provided no financial details of their new arrangement, but the companies said the joint venture will seek to develop so-called biosimilars, also known as bio-generics, which are copies of drugs made from genetically engineered living cells. By comparison, most drugs sold by large drug companies ...

Insurance Problems

My husband was recently diagnosed with MS and his doctor prescribed Avonex for him. I received a phone call yesterday stating that our copay is $750. OMG, there's no way in hell we can pay that. That's injections for only one month. How do they expect people to be able to do that? They told me that there are companies that assist with the copay's but it's based on income. Believe it or not they ...
