participating in drugs trials - thoughts?

I have just discovered a local company that are doing trials of new MS drugs and are looking for participants (paying nice money too). What are your thoughts. Has anyone been involved in trials? What are the risks?

Failing that they will still pay money for my blood! I finally found an upside to MS!

Reactivation ?

Hi , just wondering if any pf the patients that have had this treatment AND copaxone relapsed ?

This is the data I REALLY want see

It's going to be quite interesting to see what happens, because copax was rock solid in preventing an MS "like" disease in mice.

Intersesting times abound

Anyone currently trying 4-Ap?

Since my greatest disability is walking I decided to give 4-Ap or aminopyridine a try for some symptomatic relief. It was prescribed for me at the dose of 5mg TID. Has anyone had any luck with it? How long did it take to notice a change? I just swallowed the first pill today so I know I have to be patient.

This disease is so cruel. Spent the last four years worrying about walking. Now having an attack that's left nerve damage affecting my hands. They're weak, uncoordinated, and hyper-sensitive simultaneously. F***! 3 days of IV prednisone improved the symptoms from unbearable to awful. Whoopidy f***in doo! Showering is an adventure. Wiping my ass is harder than astro-physics. (Sorry). It's been three weeks. I'm a desk jockey; never thought an I'd have an injury resulting in ...

My concern relates to chronic persistent shortness of breath I've experienced for about a year now; it seems to be worsened while doing exercises involving changing my head elevation. For example, when I do squats in the gym with a moderate amount of weight, I feel very lightheaded, dizzy, and of course short of breath. I even ...

When will it make a difference?

I have been on Copaxone for 3 months now and I am still waiting for it to make a difference. I have had 1 fairly major relapse and am less healthy now then when I started, I have new symptoms popping up such as numb fingers. The MS hug is finally fading after 4 weeks!

My skin is covered in bruises and blotchy patches. Is it really all worth this? They didn't tell me it ...
