Drug Study

Well, I have decided to stop taking Avonex. It is just too much for me. To that end, I had a conversation with the drug study people and they say I am in once I wash out. I should start the real process around August. I think it is two weeks after the first visit before I get my meds, but basically it is a done deal. I'll keep everyone informed but for now, I'm zero meds (not even Ampyra). Well, I'm still taking my asthma stuff, but nothing for MS.

Dave,

Sorry you have had such a hard time with Avonex. I'm on Copaxone and it is great -- no real side effects, other than minor site reactions. I really don't know why more people don't use it - comparable short term results to the interferons, better long term and no meaningful side effects.

I also do the Swank diet, which is proven to be more effective than any of the drugs out there or in development. If you want to learn more about that, please take a look at my blog, www.manonamsion.wordpress.com.

Best of luck to you.
