First shots for Loobie this morning

I had my first shots this morning and to tell you the truth it was a little uneventful. The nurse made me turn around and close my eyes as he was instructed not to let me see the syringe (I'm sure that's normal protocol in a double-blind) and gave me one shot in each tricep area. The injections are sub-q, but it took about 15 seconds to get each syringe emptied into me, so I ...

daily immunosuppressive therapy

Since Gary has been dxed with Devic's, MS's evil twin, I have been able to step back and question MS therapies. With Devics, the standard treatment is IV steroids or IV chemo type drugs during an attack and then keeping you on a daily immune supressing dose of a selection of suppressive drugs. AZT is given lots as well as methotrexate. Cellcept, what Gary takes, is newly being considered. Devic's is an autoimmune disease as ...
