They just sound like awful drugs. They will treat your current symptoms but will leave you feeling sick elsewhere! I just don't get why they can;t get their skates on with making something decent instead of something rubbish.

Ah...they've given it a name now, "Gilenia" that will further confuse us from referring to the research we've been following. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but this is also fingolimod, right?

Gilenia, fingolimod, or FTY 720 - same thing, if you want to refer to previous reports. I think I'll bump the one linked below.
Dx'd with MS & HNPP (hereditary peripheral neuropathy) 7/03 but must have had MS for 30 yrs before that. I've never taken meds for MS except 1 yr experiment on LDN. (I found diet, exercise, sleep, humor, music help me the most.)
