    In my MS Wire column this week I ask myself whether, at 71 years old, I’m too old to be on the DMT that I’m using. Does there come a point where it no longer makes sense to be starting a highly effective medication? What do you think?

    Am I Too Old for Aggressive MS Treatment?

    I quit my DMTs after I read that they are not proving effective after age 60. I was never convinced they did anything anyway so it was an easy choice.

    Don’t let your chronological age dictates your treatment.  I’ve seen people in their 70s and 80s more youthful and active than people in their 30s or 40s.  At the first meeting with my neuro, he told me that his other MS with as much brain damage lived to 93.  I was 54 at the time.  Older now and looking forward to beating that record and using more therapeutic developments.
