I'm to start taking Ocrevus by infusion in a few weeks, after getting weekly shots of Avonex for quite a while. Does anyone have an experience to share on the effects I might have?

Hi 51275758! In addition to any community feedback you may receive, I wanted to share some information from our site on Ocrevus. I don't want to overwhelm you with information, but we do have a fair amount! Here is a piece from one of our contributors about her first Ocrevus infusion -- https://multiplesclerosis.net/living-with-ms/first-ocrevus-infusion/. Here is an interview with an individual that had a positive treatment experience with Ocrevus -- https://multiplesclerosis.net/living-with-ms/ocrevus-patients-story/. Here is some basic information on Ocrevus, including safety and potential side effects -- https://multiplesclerosis.net/treatment/ocrevus-how-well-works-side-effects/. And here is a personal story from one of our community members -- https://multiplesclerosis.net/stories/my-ocrevus-toe-dip/. I hope all of this information gives you some idea of what you may expect. As you well know, every person responds to treatment uniquely, so what works for one individual may not work as well for another. I hope your treatment goes well and you experience minimal side effects! Feel free to update us on how you are doing, if you feel comfortable doing so. Best, Erin, MultipleSclerosis.net Team Member.
