I had the other half of my first infusion om December 19th. On Christmas morning, I peed like I haven't peed in 30 years! Good pressure and I feel like I actually emptied my bladder. No pitiful little dribble! (Hope no one was offended.)

That's great, pmt75p! I know many of our members can appreciate what a good feeling that must have been. And, this is a pretty open and honest community. I don't think anyone would be offended by your sharing. I hope this trend continues for you and Ocrevus is a good fit for you. Thanks for sharing! Best, Erin, MultipleSclerosis.net Team Member.

My doctor wants me to start on Ocrevus but I'm a little concerned. What kind of side effects did you have? Did the infusion go OK? What do you think of this drug?

Hi Reinbo101! I hope pmt75p is able to reply to your question. I wanted to share some information on Ocrevus with you. I don’t want to overwhelm you with information, but we do have quite a bit! 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.
