MS is a life-long disease that affects the nervous system by destroying the protective covering (myelin) that protects the nerve fibers.
This medication just happens to cost $4000.00 a month AND it is NOT covered by our insurance plan!! That’s about all we MAKE in one month! It is not paid for by the study because it would be prescribed for me anyway and supposedly I would need to be on it for the rest of my life!
The possible side effects of the drug are frightening.
So I have some questions:
When do the benefits of this drug out-way the possible side effects and staggering cost?
Do I wait until I have another attack before I believe the doctor and take the medication?
Why in the world do I have such costly health insurance if it isn’t going to help me when I need it?
How in the world am I going to be able to afford to take this drug which just MIGHT help?
