Good morning,

Hello, I was diagnosed with MS 4 year ago. Bataseron has been working for me. No relapses thus far. Finger crossed.

When I first started with the meds, I had the flue like symptoms. I also had something like a dizzy spell but it has a different term to it. Also the injection are every other day. The injection are that pain in the a##. Exercise and the meds have kept me going without the relapses. I pesonally intends to stay on the Bataseron until the doc tells me otherwise. I hope this helped. Have a great day.
