Just to give you an update on the med.
Aubagio comes with a "black box" warning which lists two severe risks: severe liver injury and risk of birth defects if taken during pregnancy.
With regard to the potential liver injury, liver function blood tests must be performed within 6 months PRIOR to starting Aubagio and every month for the first 6 months.
Regarding pregnancy, it is only to be prescribed to women of childbearing years if a reliable birth control is used.
For either of the two aforementioned risks, if liver damage is detected or if a woman becomes pregnant while on Aubagio,an accelerated elimination of the drug is the course of action and can remove 98% of the drug within 11 days.
There is a financial assistance program available for MSers who qualify. But the availability from Oct 1 is a bit off because if you wanted it now, it would appear that you would have to wait until at least April 2013 before you could take it due to the blood tests required.
There you go. You are now armed with new information and more questions for your doctors! As always, whatever your course of treatment, make any decision for yourself.
