I have been holding out to give Tovaxin a fair shake before I posted on this thread. I started my 3 month hiatus a few weeks ago after injection #4. I return for injection #5 in late December.
• When did you receive your first vaccination?
July 6, 2007
• What dose did you receive? How many millions of cells?
Standard phase 11/b dosage
• What was your overall experience? Did you get better or worse?
Interesting question, I'll try to make it as short as possible. Prior to my first injection I had 8 months of rapidly worsening symptoms. I nearly withdrew about a month before the injection date to seek more immediate treatment. Oddly, about that time I started a cycle of remission and by the time I had my 1st injection I was much improved. I have continued on the path of improvement ever since. Has Tovaxin helped? I haven't clue. I am better, much better than a year ago. The paralysis/numbness that has laid claim to most of my right side remains, but my strength, stamina and general well being is tremendously improved. I am back to work (impossible 6 months ago) albeit on a lighter schedule. With MS nothing is predictable, but for what it's worth, in a strictly higher power sort of way, I am convinced that I am on "drug" and I am also sure that it has helped. The power of positive thinking is priceless.
• What side effects did you notice?
Slight flu-like symptoms after the first 2 doses. Nothing since.
