    My neurologist is trying to start a treatment plan that involves Lemtrada and then the years following infusion patients will use copaxone, in which has shown to cut disability and further progression substantially. I have already failed rebif, and another drug. I am just wondering if there are any of you guys who have gotten Lemtrada and how it went. I have heard some great things about it, as well as some awful side effects (but what MS med doesnt do that). Had anyone also continued on with Copaxone after the 2 years of Lemtrada?

    Hello I’m new to this site , but my neurologist is always trying to get me on Lemtrada. Ive been prescribed several medications and none have been affective ,but that’s the just in my case and everyone’s different. Sorry this doesn’t answer your questions but I may have to try Lemtrada as well soon.
    Good luck 🙂

    I have read some great things about it, but that the process of it is very hard on your body, but after a few years people feel better than they ever have and the rate of relapses dramatically drops. It is also pretty taunting reading the side effects and dangers but it seems like they keep up with your health with labs and skin checks up until 4 years after the treatment. I am a worry wart so I would go into the doctor for any little thing anyway....
