ACTION Needed: MS Drug needs Approval (Petition)

WANT FDA APPROVAL FOR LEMTRADA FOR USE IN TREATMENT OF MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS

MS DRUG PETITIONS FDA

To all the my friends, I feel compelled to call attention to a medication that I have been on for 7 years that is still being used as a study drug in the treatment of MS called Lemtrada.  It has been also been called Campath or Alemtuzumab.  I have written about this in my blog on earlier posts, but this is a quick request urging everyone to please read, sign, and pass the link for the petition on to everyone you know whether they have MS or not.

Lemtrada is responsible for my improvement when nothing else approved worked, and it disturbs me that the reasoning the FDA cites as it’s main concern of this medication is the possible other disorders that a person can get after taking it. I have seen and heard of all the different medications that are already approved that does the very same thing. It should always be up to the physician and the patient of what medications and treatment options that should be prescribed for their treatment, NOT THE GOVERNMENT.  As I stated, Lemtrada is responsible for improving my condition after two years of taking Betaseron that failed to work at all. I manage to go from RRMS to PPMS while on it. Lemtrada got me out of a wheel chair and walking without any assisted devices, decreased the amount of exacerbation’s, and improved my cognitive problems. I CANNOT sing it’s praises enough and would recommend it to anyone who hasn’t improved on their current therapy.  I am taking my next dose in February.
