Changing Rebif Schedule

Hi Guys I’ve been wondering about this for a while. I normally take my Rebif shot Thursdays, Saturdays and Mondays, but sometimes I am just so so tired and dreading the shot that I postpone by one day, therefore postponing the rest of the schedule. I do this maybe once every 2 weeks. Now my question is: is it bad to play around with the schedule like this? Thanks!

Hi. No I don’t think so, my Betaferon is supposed to be every other day but sometimes I forget an injection even after 15 years of doing them. Also if I am away over a weekend I postpone it till I get back to save taking all the stuff with me. Nothing terrible has happened!

Doing them on set days is a good idea to stay on schedule, I do mine when the date is an odd number to help me remember but it still doesn’t always work. I don’t think it’s going to do any harm to miss the odd one.

When I was on Rebif I’d inject Monday, Wednesday, Friday… then have the weekend off.

I think it’s better to try to keep to your usual days, but wouldn’t matter too much if you had the odd hicc-up!
