I started on rebif last monday and was issued the rebismart. The MS nurse that day told me that the rebif can stay in this device for a week but the other cartridges have to stay in the fridge - simple!
However i’m starting of at the low dose of 8.8 gradually making my way up to 44mg, this means that the cartiridge is not empty for my injections this week, i was told to replace the rebif anyway today even though it is not empty as today would be the week up for it being in the rebismart. I rang the MS nurse today and she said that it was fine to continue with the cartridge i have in it as it is ok in the device for 2 weeks.
So now i have conflicting advice from two MS nurses can anyone else help and advise me?
Also one nurse told me the red blotches i was getting were normal but the one this morning said it was an allergic reaction and might have to change injections! The blotches are not hot, itchy or swollen.
