My neuro recommended stopping Mayzent

Post by hargarah »

I was on Mayzent for about 1 1/2 to 2 years, but then had to stop, as I started to develop bladder infections. I decatheterize normally about four times a day, and had not had a bladder infection for about a decade. The first one went rather quickly with the drug Cipro, but the second one landed me in the hospital, where I had to have regular IV treatment to get rid of it. I forgot that the drug was an immunosuppressant, but my neurologist strongly recommended that I stop the drug, as I could develop an even worse infection, that could’ve been fatal.
