Hello lwkk218,

Welcome to the board!  I am so glad you found us.  You will find this to be a fun and supportive place to be.  I am on copaxone so I don't have any experience with tysabri but we have a couple of members on it.  I am sure they will be along shortly to give you words of support and advice.  Please let us know how you do tomorrow.

Hi lwkk218,
Welcome to the board. Geez i didn't see this yesterday, sorry. I would have tried to answer any questions you may have had, but its a little late. I hope everything went well for you today. It is very scary the first time you get your infusion, but once the first one is out of the way, it's a piece of cake. I've only had 3 so far, so i am by no means an expert, but if you have any questions for me, feel free to ask.
Please let us know how it went for you.
Good Luck

I hestitate to post cos I don't have anything to add about the meds but I'm glad you found this board too! I like it here... I like the information, tips and friendly guidance I've found since my dx... though I seem to be a "mild" case (it's just all the same nuisances I just know why now) I appreciate the reflections and humor and input around here.
Looking forward to seeing you around and getting to know you too! Welcome!
