Sara’s journey to managing relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS) started with her diagnosis back in 2005. She had just graduated from college and was beginning her career in healthcare administration. Driving home one day, Sara experienced blurry vision in her right eye. Following a series of doctor visits and tests, Sara was surprised to find out that she had MS. She and her family were shocked and scared—and wondered what the future would hold for her.
Sara started with an injectable medication
Sara began treatment for her relapsing MS with an injectable medication, which she found daunting. Her treatment involved injecting herself multiple times per week—a course Sara followed for three years. During that time, Sara had gotten married and wanted to have children, so she and her neurologist agreed to discontinue the injectable treatment.
A new start with ZEPOSIA
Following the birth of her second child, Sara began noticing what she thought could be a return of her MS symptoms. Her family urged her to go back to her neurologist to get a clearer picture of what was going on with her health. An MRI showed that new lesions had appeared, confirming that Sara’s relapsing MS was responsible for her symptoms. Sara and her neurologist discussed available treatment options, and together they decided that Sara would begin treatment with ZEPOSIA, a once-daily pill, as a participant in ZEPOSIA clinical studies.
ZEPOSIA® (ozanimod) is a prescription medicine used to treat relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS), to include clinically isolated syndrome, relapsing-remitting disease, and active secondary progressive disease, in adults.
It is not known if ZEPOSIA is safe and effective in children.
Sara believes the decision to treat her relapsing MS with ZEPOSIA was a good one: “I’m very glad that my doctor and I chose to start ZEPOSIA to treat my relapsing MS. It’s a pill. It doesn’t require refrigeration. You take it once a day at the same time, with or without food.”
Looking forward to what’s next
Today, Sara enjoys staying busy with her favorite activities: she exercises, stays close with her family, and spends a lot of time at the soccer field with her sons. She’s really looking forward to watching her sons continue to learn and grow.
Sara is excited about the future. She’s learned quite a bit about living with relapsing MS since her diagnosis in 2005—including what works best for her: “I think it’s important for people with relapsing MS to understand that it’s not the end of the road. Partner with your healthcare team to make sure you’re on the treatment that’s right for you.”
