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 ...

Hot flashes and Rebif

Does anyone else have this problem?

I went to my GYN for checkup and had them do blood work for pre menopause or menopause. They called to say my hormones were no where near even pre menopause. So it must be the Rebif. I go to my neuro on the 11th so I can share the news and see what he says.

Titanium AFO's

My neuro has prescribed an AFO for foot drop. I live 2 hours away from neuro and was planning to get fitted in hometown. Neuro said to make sure AFO is made from titanium, but no one I've contacted is familiar with anything of the sort. Any suggestions? Maybe I'm not asking for the right thing?

Any help would be appreciated!!!
