My neurologist recently suggested that I stop taking Aubagio, due to my continuing to experience adverse side effects, even at a lower dosage. I need to make an appointment with her, to discuss alternative treatment options for the management of my relapsing-remitting MS.
I feel like I’m running out of options to treat my MS. After many years of injecting Copaxone, I developed a serious reaction to this medication. Despite its multiple adverse side effects, I decided to try Aubagio. During the first few months, I had initially been optimistic that it would eventually be tolerable to take.
After seven months on Aubagio, I’ve now concluded that I am no longer willing to accept how it has negatively impacted my quality of life.
The ongoing management of MS requires much flexibility, as well as the willingness to try medications with significant risks.
