I started having walking difficulties less than a year after I was
diagnosed in 1998. Eventually I would be using a wheelchair for four
years before Tysabri came on the market.
I took part in a video shoot about patient advocacy at
the BIOGEN Headquarters in Boston. You can see part of it
here or click the "Fighter's forum" to view it.
This is the brochure that Biogen distributes at MS seminars and
doctor's offices nationwide;
Like the disease itself, the drugs for MS will affect everyone
differently. Yes, I started walking one day after my 3rd infusion of
Tysabri in January of 2007, but that doesn't mean everyone will notice a change that
quickly. Many have, but others have not.
I am taking the drug "TYSABRI" for my MS and have been on it since
November of 2006. I get an IV infusion once every 28 days.
