MS on Fingolimod?

Any Mumsnetters with MS on Fingolimod? I have RRMS, been on Copaxone for 4 years with no side effects (other than it was working well enough). After a recent MRI showed new active lesions I am being changed to Fingolimod.

If you're on this what have your side effects been and especially how did your first dose in hospital go? I know it's administered on a cardiac ward with a 6 hour observation as it can cause bradycardia this worries me a little as my normal resting HR is around 55 and BP around 97/58. Anything else I should know?

Sorry that should say other than it wasn't working well enough
