Multiple Sclerosis Medication Side Effects

Merely Me Health Guide
  • Hi everybody!

     

    Hope you are all doing well.  Just had a mammogram today.  Just because you have MS doesn't mean you can't have other medical issues.  So don't put off your medical tests which don't have to do with your MS.  I was fortunate...nothing wrong on my mammogram.  I feel...relieved.

     

    Okay...on another note...when I went to see the neurology Physician's Assistant she prescribed some Baclofen for me for my spells of spasticity.  I have to tell you...I have yet to take any.  Why?  I am looking at those side effects listed...seizures?  hallucinations?  And to boot...this is a drug used to help people come off of cocaine.    Uhh....I have to say...I have some reservations about taking this medication.

    My question for you today is...do any of you hesistate to take some of the MS meds because of the potential for side effects?  What is the worst side effect you have experienced from your meds?  When do you decide that the potential benefits outweigh the potential side effect risks?

     

    We would love to know your thoughts on this topic.  Your input and experience is of great value.  Please don't hesitate to share!
