Monotherapy Question

Has anyone heard how much time needs to lapse between immunosuppressive treatments and Tysabri? I'm going to have one more Novantrone infusion next week.

A lot depends on the "half life" of the drug that you are taking. Some drugs stay in your system for hours, others for days and some for weeks. And these drugs can have effects on certain organs such as Novantrone can on your heart.

It is worth sitting down with your neurologist and getting him to do some investigating on this issue. Hopefully the people working with Tysabri will have some answers to your question and give that to the FDA.

Return to Tysabri (Antegren or Natalizumab)
