i am so tired all the time why?
how do i know coxpaone is working?
im still working but i had to go from 40 hours to 10 to 16 hours a week
due to having a real hard time standing and walking and being tired

Neil S Lava, MD responded:
You need to talk with your neurologist about your fatigue. There are medications that can be used for patients who have fatigue with her multiple sclerosis.
We usually repeat the brain MRI 6 months after starting therapy. By that time we can tell whether the medication is being effective. This is based on symptoms and MRI findings.
