New treatment forum - Ocrevus

We now have a new forum dedicated to the discussion of Roche's new monoclonal antibody treatment for MS, Ocrevus also known as Ocrelizumab.

I am just coming off Tysabri, I will be starting Ocrevus very soon. I am very afraid, of the side effects and will this even work. I was diagnosed 5 years ago, I have been on copaxon , Avonex and Tysabri. Tysabri was supposed to be the 1 , the 1 that will make the difference.
I really liked it, but I had 2 relapse in less than a year. This last 1 left permit damage (speech, memory the ability to form words ). Please tell me who is on it and what do you think???

hi TmcB, i'm afraid i can't comment re the drug treatment side of things but am curious what you may have tried along the health promotion track?

take control of your own health.
pursue optimal self care, with or without a diagnosis.

Symptoms started in early 2017, loss of red saturation in 1 eye. Then the beaten all night with a stick. Formally diagnosed April 2018, Ocrevus started May 2018. Male age 46 at diagnosis.

Zero side effects except for horrible reaction to tetanus shot. After research, B cells ferry tetanus toxoid to T cells, Ocrevus killed B cells, leaving toxoid circulating. Fever for 3 days, and muscle cramps, joint pain. Roche and Genentech have been informed.

Every single set of data shows ocrevus is basically a wonder drug. Not only does it stop progression after a certain length of treatment, new data shows recovery of function in some.

I had to use my arms to lift my legs out of the car, after the first infusion of ocrevus, I can now mow my .62 acre yard with a walk behind.
