Questions to the study
I have been diagnosed with MS 2 years ago and I been taking gilenya for almost 1 year. It has helped a lot with my relapses, my last one was in August 2015. But i am experiencing vaginal bleeding between periods. Is this normal? Should I be concerned?
I am a 30 year old girl. I have been diagnosed by MS for over 4 years. I am on Gilenya for almost 3 months. I have my periods every 2weeks since then. could it be relevant to Gilenya, since my mensturation was always on time.
User reviews to the study
I just started Gilenya 5 days ago and have had stomach pain from day two on. Everyday so far. Has anyone found out why? I've never had problems with stomach pain before unless sick and rarely. It's concerning??
