Starting Natalizumab as a first line treatment ?

Post by saisriharsha » Wed May 18, 2016 3:15 am

Hi All,

I had been recently diagnosed as a case of Multiple sclerosis with active inflammation and had my first attack a month ago. Intravenous steroids were given and am currently on Oral steroids for tapering dosage. I had paraesthesias and visual symptoms in right eye, but after steroid therapy, currently i dont have any symptoms except for Urgency and frequency of micturition. My Neurologist after reviewing my clinical profile and MRI progression of lesions opined that I should be started on Natalizumab as a first line treatment for 2 years followed by switch over to other medications. However I couldn't decide whether to start with the third line of drugs straight away nor could find any inputs from the people who were started likewise. Can anyone who is also on similar treatment with Natalizumab as a first line treatment as opposed to other first line drugs share their experience? Thank you in advance for that.
