I just wondered if anyone had been declined one of the beta interferons on the grounds of depression. I am aware of the possible mood related side effects, and have read the experiences of some people on here. I have a history of mild(ish) depression and have taken medication a couple of times in the last decade or so. Initially my nurse didn’t think this would be a problem, and that I’d at least be able to try it. I am seeing the specialist next week to discuss dmd’s, so my nurse came to see me for a chat. She has now said she thinks it is highly likely it will be Copaxone, Copaxone or Copaxone (though this specialist is quite hot on the up and coming treatments…)
Has anyone else been in this situation?
