Lemtrada Stroke Lawsuit News

How can you tell if you or a loved one have multiple sclerosis?

Wednesday, December 30, 2020 - Multiple sclerosis is one of the most feared and hideous of diseases. To think of the disease is to visualize a person unable to walk without the aid of metal crutches, dragging one foot forward after another, and also the patient shaking uncontrollably. Multiple sclerosis is not a deadly disease. Those familiar with the condition say that a person dies with MS, not from it.

According to Med Page, MS symptoms can appear in individuals as early as age 20 to as late as in the 40s. People with multiple sclerosis experience brain scarring called legions that damage brain activity. "MS is a neuroinflammatory disease that affects myelin, nerve cell bodies, and the axons in the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerve. The term multiple sclerosis refers to the distinctive areas of scar tissue (sclerosis or plaques) that are visible in the white matter of people who have MS." The symptoms of the early stages of MS vary and can come and go quickly. One thing that common is that each episode of muscle spasms progresses and becomes worse, longer in duration, and more frequent than the last. This is called relapse-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). Med Page lists the following symptoms that we should watch for that could indicate MS. "vision problems such as blurred or double vision, or optic neuritis, which causes pain with eye movement and a rapid loss of vision, muscle weakness, often in the hands and legs, and muscle stiffness accompanied by painful muscle spasms. It may be severe enough to affect walking or standing. Tingling, numbness, or pain in the arms, legs, trunk, or face. Clumsiness, particularly difficulty staying balanced when walking. Bladder control problems, and intermittent or more constant dizziness." If you or someone you know are experiencing these problems you should see a doctor immediately. RRMS in the early stages may be treated with Corticosteroids, Plasma exchange (plasmapheresis), Beta interferon drugs (Rebif, Betaseron, others), Glatiramer acetate (Copaxone), Natalizumab (Tysabri), and others according to Med Page.

People in the most advanced stages often take the drug Lemtrada after they have exhausted all other options. Lemtrada is highly effective in limiting the progression of MS symptoms. It can also lengthen the time between multiple sclerosis attacks. Lemtrada can be deadly and cause instant death from having a heart attack or stroke from the moment of infusion. Lemtrada patients have filed lawsuits against the drug's maker for failing to warn them of Lemtrada's deadly side effects.

Lemtrada is administered over 5 consecutive days and can only be given in the presence of emergency medical facilities and available staff due to the dangers of stroke and heart attack. Over this time the patient may wish to go home and return each day or stay overnight in the hospital. A second or even a third Lemtrada session may be necessary one year later, followed by a third.
