    Hey everyone I am new to this! I got diagnosed with MS about 3 years ago. I have been taking tecfidera. I just met with my neurologist and he told me that I need to switch to a different medication. My lymphocytes have not stabilized with this med. Anyways I told him that I am planning on getting married and wanting to start a family in the next year or two. He told me that the IV medication are out. I left feeling hopeless and without answers. He told me that I will have to go with injections like avenex or copaxone. I am nervous with these medications because he told me they don't work as well! Honestly I don't know what to do! Suggestions or any input would be helpful? Thanks

    Hello ash1989,

    Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! Here is a link to our brochure, The MS Disease-Modifying Medications. I hope it will provide you with some information to get started on making your choice about your next medication.

    None of the disease-modifying medications are approved for use during pregnancy so I encourage you to continue discussions with your doctors about when you plan on trying to become pregnant. Here is a link to more information about pregnancy and MS.

    Ok this may be widely unpopular and I am saying this as a mom of two.  I had my two girls before I was diagnosed with MS.  Even though we don’t completely know what causes MS I have terrible anxiety that I somehow will pass this on to my children through my genes. Have you thought what it would be like to may adopt a child?
    Best wishes to you hopeful little mama,

    The medication comes with a risk and you may never know what future may hold so I would rather want you to start a family do your usual stuff and do what you like that is the most important thing in life. One of my siblings is diagnosed with MS disease and currently works with me and give me a hand in Assignmnt Writing and I assure you she is enjoying every moment of it. you have to take a risk if you want to start a family I hope and pray that these medicine work for you and you are back in your healthy routine life.

    Hi. Ok, so I don't want children and can't possibly understand how difficult this choice can be for you, but I have done a lot of reading on these meds and I don't see anything anywhere that says Copaxone is less effective. Every med in every body will work differently. I took Copaxone and within 3 weeks I noticed an amazing change. I had energy and felt like my normal self for the first time in years. I stopped it after 1 1/2 years because the schedule of it plus the site reactions were interfering with my life. I'm trying to switch to Tec now. One thing I do know is you don't want your blood counts off especially if you want to get pregnant because if your bloods counts are off it can leave you open to severe infections. Talk with your doc, do your own research, and follow your gut. I've never made a bad decision when I followed my gut. When I ignored it, that's a whole other story. Good luck! I'll say a prayer that you get what you need.

    Medications can play a part in treating a few mental issue and conditions. Treatment may also include psychotherapy (also called "talk therapy") and can you do my assignment mind brain stimulation therapies (less normal). Now and again, psychotherapy alone may be the best treatment alternative.

    You should make it really clear that changing your medication without consulting your doctor is really hazardous hence you should stay away from it. One thing is really clear that you do not know more than your doctor therefore never attempt to change medication. It can affect your health badly and bring a huge burden to your pocket therefore avoid it properly. Normally, people opt for changing medication is because they think that the current medication is not working. The question is that how anyone can decide that considering the fact that he has less knowledge than a doctor. It is necessary to know that when you feel better then contact your doctor and ask him if you need to continue your medication. Health happens to be a great gift therefore you should make sure that you do not affect it by changing your medication. Changing medication according to the guidance of your doctor will always keep you stay healthy and cope well with health issues. The professional writers helping students who are always ready to pay for dissertation is a great idea as they cover almost every topic. It means that they can guide you more about it properly.

    This is very common what the companies are doing right now at present day time. They are not ready to do face to face interview by asking the candidate to come to their office. They are using calling app which was developed by professional cv writing service blog for doing video interviews this app is really helping the companies.

    Changing medication could sometimes be a difficult process and it often took time to find a drug that worked. It can take some weeks for the side effects of a medication, for a particular individual, to be known. While patients may not like certain side effects, doctors try to balance the side effects of a medication with its effectiveness (how well it works to reduce the symptoms). Some doctors try to include patient views in decisions about medication. Some people we spoke to said they themselves had had to weigh up the side effects of medication with the benefits that they might bring.

    All solutions, even finished the counter medications, have a few contraindications. For example, acetaminophen should not be given to Essay writing Help UK people who are allergic by acetaminophen.

    I have gone through most of the ms meds. The Techfidera, as my Dr explained, needs over 6-8 months to really get into the system. I only used it for 6 months but because of a severe infection I had to stop. Aubaggio wasn't helping either. Originally, I started on Avonex but like 48% of the users I had severe flu symptoms.The severe chills for 2 days after the injection was just too much. I thought Copaxone was helping out but after 4 years it really wasn't slowing my progressive ms. Get on an injection type ASAP. Do your research and don't make the mistake I did assuming all neurologist are ms educated.
