I was on Tysabri for a fairly long time...the change in my symptoms was immediate and nothing short of amazing. I gained almost 100 pounds in a year because I just ate and ate. I was almost 100% free of my symptoms...but would start to feel them pushing to start again every four weeks...then a new infusion and bingo, right as rain.
This also means that the drug did not cure me, it only put me in remission for a short time...once the trials were stopped I lost the 100 lbs plus a few more and have been "hot" for over 2 years.
That said...I have absolutely no fear or angst starting back up and will do so ASAP.
