I am having my 10th Tysabri infusion tomorrow, and have had zero side effects...in fact - over 12,500 MS patients have received Tysabri to date with no cases of PML being reported. Also, a MS patient I met has had 51 infusions of Tysabri.
What are you so afraid of? While the FDA indicated there was a risk factor of 0.1% (or 1 in 1000), the current risk factor is actually zero in 12,500 (or 0 in 12,500).
No drug is without risk, not even aspirin.

Current safety and efficacy data can be found at http://www.elan.com/News/full.asp?id=995005 which was presented on May 3, 2007 at the American Academy of Neurology meeting.
Whether you decide to restart Copaxone, move to an interferon, or research more information on Tysabri and discuss same further with your neurologist, I hope you feel better soon and I wish you nothing but the very best...,
Our todays are only stepping stones for our tomorrows.
