Six months ago Jeri started a clinical trial for Fingolimod, a possible oral MS treatment. She started writing about the trial from the beginning. Her writing style is delightful as she carries us along on her trial journey in Fingolimod and Me..
Jeri offers us a ray of hope. Her biggest complaint about this treatment is the name. Okay, I agree Fingolimod doesn't bring to mind gorgeous visuals, but it hasn't even completed its trial yet. Maybe when it is approved by the FDA, they will let her rename the pills and plan the marketing campaign. At one time she had James Bond in mind as a spokes icon.
I know, I know, I said "when" not "if" when talking about FDA approval, but I have to do my part of positive thinking.
While you are visiting Jeri's Fingolimod and Me, be sure to go further to her new project, a gathering spot for the MS community to visit and share, My MS and Me.
Thank you, Jeri, for testing this new-fangled med. If the few side effects you have experienced so far are comparable to other testers, it sounds as if we have a winner.
