Betaferon withdrawal

I have been using Betaferon for 2 years, always had bad jab site reactions. I’m starting Gilenya shortly and so have stopped Betaferon about a week ago as you have to have a one month ‘wash out’ before starting Gilenya. My question is has anyone experienced any withdrawal symptoms from Betaferon? I’m feeling a bit odd, very fatigued, headaches and my body is a bit achy.

Might be a good idea to check with your nurse/neuro, I had no side effects or withdrawal symptoms when I stopped after 8 years

I was on Extavia that is a direct copy of Betaferon and stopped it to switch to Tecfidera. I didn’t have withdrawal symptoms. That’s just my experience so I guess it would be a good idea to check with your nurse/neuro,
