don not take immunosuppressive meds ...please
if only they would work, i would take loads of them... but tens of bn $ and lots of weird biologic "...zumab" names later... they still perform worse than .... ALA. Yes ALA, the lipoic acid...www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/318225.php
Compared with participants who took the placebo, the researchers found that those who took lipoic acid showed a 68 percent reduction in the rate of whole brain atrophy.
For comparative purposes, the team notes that the drug ocrelizumab (brand name Ocrevus) - which was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of primary progressive MS - improved whole brain atrophy by 18 percent in clinical trials."
so ALA, a medication that will cost $200 a year, is more effective than ocrelizumab, a medication that costs $65000 a year.... Well done big pharma !
Yes, DON'T TAKE immunosupressors if u know u have an infection, it will make things many times worse. I was stupid enough to take steroids for a "persistent astma" and that's what drove me almost incapacitated 3yrs ago, i had symptoms before but they were mild, after the steroids they spiraled out of control, took me 2.5yrs to recover , and im not over yet....
