Hi there,

I have had 29 Tysabri infusions so far, and I testified before the FDA AC in March 2006 at the Tysabri hearings in an effort, along with other MS patients, to bring Tysabri back to the market.

Might I ask, do you pretreat your Tysabri infusions with an antihistamine such as a Benadryl drip? Or do you take a Claritin-D tablet approximately 1 hour before your infusion? (I take a Claritin-D tablet)..., By doing either one of these pre-treatments, you can drastically reduce any possible side effects (such as the headaches you're experiencing).

You can also pretreat with a medication for your headaches (you should discuss this with your doctor), and/or you can also take a couple of Tylenol or take an Advil approximately 20 minutes before your Tysabri infusion (again, you should discuss this with your neurologist first).

In any event, I wish you nothing but the very best that life holds for you & your family..., Lauren :)
