    Peg, so glad you are going to give this a try. I hope it really does wonders for you. No one has tried harder than you to find something that helps.

    Please keep us informed. It would be nice to know what first and second infusions are like and how you do later. I hope this is the magic bullet that many have been waiting on and it sounds as though it might be.

    The differences between Rituxan and Ocrevus are discussed in this article in Multiple Sclerosis News Today (April 19):

    It wouldn't hurt to give them a call, just to remind them that you're still waiting.

    I spoke to doctor's secretary end of last week. She is handling it. I'll give her a call Wednesday.
