upcoming treatment


I haven't posted here in a while, but I was wondering if anyone knows about any upcoming treatments that actually re-myelinate rather than slow down progression. What are the names of these drugs and how long will it be before they are on the market (rough guess)

Thanks in advance.

Howdy from Houston

New to the site. My wife was dxd rrms in May 2002 at age 43. The Neuro put her on Rebif, she never really tolerated the drug, persistent flue like symptons and she had a minor relapse in Dec 04. Had a Tysabri infusion last month, but as you all know that's gone now. We'll see the Neuro next week, we're thinking he'll put her on Copaxone, he has acknowledged that the Rebif has been ...

LDN and Tysabri

Hi all.

I am considering starting LDN. I 've been on Rebif for more than 4 years and it seems that it has stopped working for me. My neuro said that it would not do any harm to test it for a few months. He wanted me to start Tysabri, but... you know!

So, I was wondering whether taking Tysabri (as soon as/if it gets available again) in combination with LDN could do any harm ...

Just started at 4.5mg and feeling numb

I started LDN on Feb. 12 and took 3mg for one month with no side effects. I didn't really feel any differences, maybe my mood was a bit lighter, but nothing significant. I just started 4.5mg (three nights so far), and today my left leg/foot is numb, like it's asleep. I'm a little freaked out and not sure what I should do. Should I just push through and see what happens, maybe this is temporary. ...

Aricept - vivid dreams

My neuro started me on Aricept 6 months ago when I was having cognitive problems. When I mentioned vivid dreams 2 months ago, she suggested taking it in the morning (which I do). The dreams are perhaps less intense, no more thwarting of airplane hijackings or rescuing my kids from getting killed, but I still have quite the dreams almost every night.

Is this bad? I reallly don't want to stop taking the Aricept. I ...
