I called both my neuro and Biogen and neither one had any information. The person I talked to at Biogen actually suggested I ask to my dr about it! Ive seen the study regarding the guinnie pigs, but have there been any studies done on humans? Does anyone here have any experience?

My neuro just wants me on Ty for a year (or so she says) to get my MRIs stable and then move on to something else. I did bring up LDN, but the way my MRIs are going she said it would be better to go with something thats proven to have high effacy than risking it on other meds.
I actually didn't 'feel' like I had MS until right after my 2nd Tysabri infusion in February 2010. I consulted with my neuropsychotherapist on this and he said to forget about having children
And are you comfortable with Cristiano L.?
