Well, I had an appoinment with my neurologist today. He feels that I am doing well, and therefore he would like me to stay on copaxone for now. If I continue to have bad reactions he will then want me to consider tysabri. But I have only had one IPIR out of four that would be described as horrible so I am willing to stay on the copaxone. I am not ready to make the commitment to tysabri yet, expecially if the copaxone is working. He does have about 4 patients on ty now so I think more and more doctors are also getting more comfotable with prescribing it. In fact, that is what he said.The good news is that after testing my eyes, relfexes, gait, etc. I do not have to see him again for 6 months. He did give me a prescription of bacoflen to take on as needed basis at night for muscle spasms. I did not want to take anything else on a daily basis so he said I could try it this way. Does anyone else take muscle relaxants just when you feel you really need them as opposed to everyday?
