Kesimpta

Does anyone have first hand knowledge about this med?

  1. Hi, ! I know that a number of our community members have used or are currently using Kesimpta and I hope they see your question and share their experiences here. Here's some basic information about the medication -- https://multiplesclerosis.net/treatment/kesimpta. And here's a conversation from our forums from just last year about Kesimpta -- https://multiplesclerosis.net/forums/kesimpta.


    I hope this information is helpful for you and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any other questions.

    1. Thanks for those sites, they are my next click. I usually don't read the side effects, but like an idiot, this time I did. Now I'm nervous I might get "flu like". Well, off to the sites you gave me. Be well.

    2. , I hear you. Those side effect lists can be a bit daunting, to say the least. Just keep reminding yourself that they are obligated to list those side effects, even if some of them are pretty uncommon. You may get lucky and have very few (or no!) side effects!

  2. , I am currently taking this medication and my next dose is waiting for me in the fridge for Monday. I still have to use my walker around the house and the wheelchair for long distances out the house, but am hopefully not getting any worse. Taking the shot is more convenient for me than going to the Ocrevus center. On the fourth evening after each shot, my stomach feels upset. And as of right now, I feel more tired a week before and a week after my shot. I have been on it for about six months now. The humidity and heat still bothers me, but hopefully Being affected by the heat and the cold will change for the better someday if at all possible. Take care and I hope everything goes well for you on Kesimpta. Oh yea, and for me, I call the pharmacy a couple weeks prior to my next dose to make sure I get it on time. They were a week late one month and three days late the following month.

    1. good point. I even wrote two books about my experiences with MS.

    2. Congratulations on the books, ! I am sure they are proving useful to others out there who are just starting their journeys. Best wishes and happy writing! - Lori (Team Member)

  3. I am thinking you will be fine.

    1. Thank you!
