Hi, I'm my doctor thinks I may have MS (waiting for results to come back) and I was hoping to read about some of your experiences with MS treatments.

Is there one that is "better" than the others? Are certain treatments more effective? Do some have fewer side effects?

Sorry for all the questions, I'm just overwhelmed and I'd like to try to inform myself as much as possible.

thanks a lot in advance!

Hello @johan89‍, thank you for opening this discussion. I think many of understand what you're going through, getting diagnosed with MS can be a lot to process. 

If you haven't had a chance to read it yet, we just recently published an article sharing Carenity members' diagnosis experience. You can find it here: MS diagnosis: Carenity members tell their story

Can anyone share their experience with MS treatments? Has a particular medicine been more effective than another?

Feel free to share your thoughts with us here!

Take care,

@johan89 I was started on Rebif(injection). It was the worst drug, IMO, to be on but they only had 4 when I was diagnosed (2009). I continued to have relapses. The pain from the injection sites were absolutely awful. Every morning after taking it the night before would feel like I had the flu. I missed a ridiculous amount of work that year I was on it. I did try Gileneya(pill) but it was only for a few months and then I switched to Tecfidera (pill). I can't remember why exactly I switched pills but I love Tecfidera! My only problem now is remembering twice a day to take it, Lol!
