Tysabri and Seniors

After 6 years of Avonex and two years of Copaxone
I will soon be starting Tysabri if all goes as planned.
Are there others that have started this medication
in their 60's?

Not sure how to send this but I will give a try.

Re: Tysabri and Seniors

Hi there. Welcome to health boards. I dont know what kind of response youll get here, of others on Tysabri- we dont seem to have allot of posters on the subject, but maybe YOUR post will spur others to talk about it.

I know of two people personally who are on Tysabri, both in their late 50s...they are both doing very well on the drug. My neuro is one of the few proponents of Tysabri in the area, and we have an infusion center at our local hospital which has about 65 patients of assorted far, the feedback has all been very positive.

I wish you well on the drug. Please come back and keep us posted!!
