Hi tc - It is perfectly safe to take both LDN and Avonex together. Don’t wait. There is no contraindication and there’s a lot of people taking both beta-interferon and LDN together.

The advice about contraindications comes from the years when both the action of LDN and beta-inteferon wasn’t known. You will still see people commenting on forums that beta-interferon is an immunosuppressant - it isn’t. If you look up Rebif or Avonex on Wikipedia there is a very good explanation on how it works - by strengthening the blood/brain barrier and also modifying the immune system.

In RRMS, LDN doesn’t ‘boost’ the immune system. It may well work in a different way in PPMS/SPMS, but I don’t know. You will be fine - just start with a low dose of LDN and hopefully, you’ll enjoy those dreams. I had some excellent vivid dreams when I started LDN. I was quite sorry that they stopped.

best wishes,

K
