I just finished a 30-minute phone call with a registered nurse, from the One- to-One program for Aubagio. This program offers individuals support for taking Aubagio, a medication for relapsing forms of MS.
I learned about the contact information for three separate foundations that provide financial assistance for this very expensive medication. I also obtained information about online sources of support for those who take Aubagio.
I needed to list all of my current medications , as well as my known allergies. I then listened to a recording that detailed the specific side effects that may occur with Aubagio, including altered liver functioning, decreased immune cells, hair thinning, and nausea.
I know that I definitely need to treat my relapsing-remitting MS. Nevertheless, it’s truly daunting to have started taking a medication with such potential side effects.
