I was on Rebif for 4 years up to this September. I always found I could have the odd glass of alcohol without a problem.
I will never forget one conversation I had with the nurse at one of my check-ups in the first year. I had missed my staff Christmas party the previous year as I was in hospital with my first ever symptoms so I was determined to make up for it the following year. Christmas was approaching, the staff party was on a Friday and this coincided with injection night and I always did my injections at bedtime so I could sleep through any side effects.
I mentioned all of this to the nurse and told her that if I was anywhere near as drunk as I planned to be, I would be in no fit state to give myself the injection. I asked what she suggested. She was one of the older nurses at the hospital and she fixed me with a steely look and said “If you must have a drink, I suggest you switch injection night to Saturday and then go back to Monday, Wednesday, Friday the following week.” To this day, I don’t know how I kept a straight face!!
