Depression caused by Lemtrada?
| Reigsa
Hello everyone
I was diagnosed with MS in May 2010. Ever since my symptoms mainly included my right side "falling asleep". I was always still able to walk etc., but I just didn't feel my right side as well. After a dose of Cortison the symptoms vanished.
So far, it hasn't been too bad for me and the diagnosis never troubled me that much. However, I tried every medication available in my country (Switzerland) and now am now treated with Lemtrada. Shortly afterwards I developed manic symptoms for three weeks. When I got back to "normal", I felt great again, but only for one month. Then I developed a depression which is why I am taking antidepressants now. I feel very good again (thank God!), but my latest MRI shows that Lemtrada might not have the (good) effect on the MS that we all hoped for.

Lemtrada has been available for patients for only 8 months by now. Therefore, there aren't a lot people taking it, so there's not much data concerning psychological side-effects.

Are you currently being treated with Lemtrada? If yes or if you know someone, have you or has the person you know suffered from depression or sth similar afterwards?

Any response is much appreciated!

Thanks a lot

Reigsa

a rash is the FIRST symptom listed on any drug med. guide as an allergic reaction. One needs to contact doctor immediately. Usually recommended to stop immediately. Call your doctor, if yu feel this is due to any drug you may be taking, RX OR over the counter. Don't take chances. It could be very serious.
good luck.
