Hi, has anyone been on Avonex and then switched to Plegridy?
I was diagnosed with RRMS in Nov 2010. After 3 - 4 bad relapses within that first year my neurologist recommended I try Avonex and it’s worked pretty well. I am now thinking of switching to Plegriday a) because you can inject fortnightly and b) because the injections can be kept out of the fridge for up to 30 days which would be great when travelling abroad.
If someone here has been on both my question is (and I know we’re all different) but did you have any bad side effects with the Plegridy. I inject on a Friday and those very first 4 - 5 weekends I did feel rather very rough/flu like which gradually eased. Because Avonex is similar to Plegridy but a higher dose and injected subcutaneously am I likely to feel just as bad as before …or worse. Don’t know what to do. Your experiences would be greatly appreciated, tia.
