I’ve seriously been considering discontinuation of Aubagio. I’m very tired of persistent, unpleasant side effects. The two most prominent are diarrhea and hair loss.
Even more sobering, however, is the increased risk of developing cancer while taking this medication. Wouldn’t it be utterly ironic to develop cancer while taking chemotherapy?
Nevertheless, I know that it is very important to continue to treat my relapsing-remitting MS. There are other disease-modifying medications that my neurologist could prescribe, thankfully. I have a very serious choice to make about how best to do just that.
