If anyone uses the Avonex auto injector pen please could you let me know if you found it easier/better to use than the pre-filled syringes.
I have been injecting for 10 months and ok had the odd painful injection but for the last two weeks I can’t seem to get it in the right place or maybe it’s because syringe is larger. Last week I had 4 attempts to get it in far enough to release so my legs didn’t look great afterwards. Last night got it in first time and when I pulled out the blood came rushing out and went all over my thigh, so I put on tissues and ice pack and this morning leg got a little hard lump and bruised.
I pull the leg apart with my fingers before inserting, I check for visible veins but obviously can’t see below the skin. I am now loosing confidence but petrified of moving onto Rebif incase I react badly and then can’t move back.
Any help gladly received.
