started using klonapin last night for the leg cramps, and it seemed to work. no cramps, but it didn’t knock me out like it threatened to do in the literature (which i guess is good), and i did wake up very early this morning (which is not good, but possibly unrelated). so that was overall good.
and i am resigned to starting novantrone, even after reading all the dire side effects listed on web md. it seems the choices are novantrone or nothing. i’m working on the swank diet, but i don’t want to wait to see if it will work. it is getting hard to walk down the hall, and driving is starting to get a little iffy. so i guess we’ll do novantrone for a year or so, see what happens.
then, once it has been proven for another year, i might start with tysabri. don’t you love how we are given meds to “try,” to see if they help? don’t you wish there were at least a few absolutes with this ms stuff?
