Does anybody take oral MS meds?
i'm getting really tired of my copaxone, just because. and especially since i've also started injecting insulin.

i havn't talked to my neuro yet. i'm uncomfortable stopping anything and not trying something else. and, i've been very stable MS wise and don't want to rock the boat.

are any of the oral meds REALLY effective?

thanks for you input.

Tired of C too, but doc is not at all ready to rock the boat. He wants more longterm data. I agree 100%

But I think that the newbies starting orals as their first line of treatment will likely respond differently than us old-timers who have tried the ABCRT's.

i talked to my dr yesterday and he said i could STOP the C! wow.
i've been on it 10 yrs and i'm 64. i've never had a flare or ON altho i have been dx'd per mri/lp.

i have brain and spinal lesions but nothing active.
i hope i'm not playing russian roulette but i'm going to follow his advice.
he didn't think i needed any other med.

he did say something about the insulin and the tamoxifen (4 brst cancer) modulating the immune system. i'm going to trust him since i want to stop anyway.
