Questions for any previous Acthar users

1. After using Acthar, did your MS improve and "stay" better?

2. Have you been diagnosed with Glaucoma?

I used Acthar about 6 months ago.  After a while, my MS improved and has been better than it has EVER been in 10 years.  I've spoken with one other person who used Acthar and she said her MS improved to the point that she could walk again.  So, I'm curious if anyone else noticed such a difference after using Acthar

Regarding the Glaucoma - I have a follow-up appointment with specialist tomorrow to confirm Glaucoma.  Although I have, and have always had, very low eye pressure - he says I have 70-80% cupping in both of my eyes.  He said that I probably had high pressure in my eyes while I was on steroids.  Needless to say, I will be asking a lot of questions tomorrow but I wanted to see if anyone here might have some feedback on this.

Thanks!

I used it last year.  I just had steroids 1.5 weeks ago.  So, after ACTHAR I went a year without a relapse.  I found that it did not work as fast and still had some bad side affects.
