Hi! My husband has MS...his Neuro recently asked him to consider Tysabri or Novantrone because the Capaxone isn't working well for him anymore (he already did Betaseron)..So my question is...have any of you been on either and what do you think of them??

Hey Hilary

I'm undiagnosed so can't offer any input on u'r question, but wanted to pop in and welcome u to the board. I hope u and u'r husband will find us helpful and supportive. There are many here who are or have been on Copaxone, but few if any on Tysabri. As Cyndi said, i'm sure others will be along soon to offer insight on the two, but in the meantime i wanted to let u know we're glad u'r here. Please feel free to ask any question u like.

Hi Hilary,
I have a good friend who did the novantrone for 2 1/2 years and it worked wonders for her (she was able to come out of her wheelchair).(She took Avonex while on it)   She is now on Tysabri and doing well.  (But she has only had 3 treatments so far).  I am seriously considering one or the other myself.
I hope you find the right combo for your hubby...keep us posted! :-)
