I've been on Avonex for the year and a half since I was diagnosed...some crappy side effects at first...flu symptoms and migraines, but they went away after a couple months and now I don't really ahve any problems. And, no relapses so far...

i also take rebif, and have done so for past 3 years. before that i took betaferon, which was a lot less painful. been quite good on rebif though so will continue. stll find that i suffer from 'flu-like' symptoms if i dont take paracetamol or brufen on those nights, though this probably has something to do with the fact i am a night RN; if i was going to go to bed after the injection i may sleep through the symptoms.

I was dx'd 9 1/2 years ago. I was on Avonex for 5 1/2 years. I had all the classic side effects. Flu like sypmtoms, fatigue and site injection pain, redness and swelling. The one sypmtom I had and was not aware was a side effect was a depression factor. I have switched to Copaxone and have been using that MS therapy for 4 years. I am happy to say I have been relape and side effect free since. I am so lucky I was talked into changing. I am aware that this does not work for everyone. I am so glad it does for me.

Hi,I just read your post. Sorry to hear about your MS, but I would like to share with you some information. I have placed a couple short videos that will give you an idea of what I am sharing and a couple audios of people who have MS, and what response they had when someone shared something with them. I hope you will take the time to watch and listen: I am very happy to share more with you, feel free to either call me at: 503-616-4579 or email me at: This could change your life. I am passionate about educating people about letting people know about recent scientific discoveries that have led to a new understand of human physiology and how the body fights sickness and disease. The resulting technology of these discoveries is helping people to see dramatic improvements in their health when medicine may have taken the position that there is no real hope beyond managing symptoms. And speaking of your Dr. I also have a letter from a Doctor as he writes to other Drs., it is something you could share with your Dr. : I am here to provide you with more information. I hope you are open to exploring, for your sake. Lorna Landis
