Hope everyone had a great Christmas!
I’ve been on Rebif 44 for nearly 12 months now with no real problems. I have to take two 400mg Ibuprofen (a lot I know) at the time I inject and the only side effects I had was the odd ache the following day.
This last couple of weeks, however, the Ibuprofen don’t seem to be working as well as they did. I’ve been having to take two paracetamol as well, around 1-2 hours afterwards, because the shakes and aching just gets too much. I don’t really like taking so many pills but realise I have no choice. I’ve also found that drinking water seems to help a little.
My question is does anyone know why, all of a sudden, the painkillers seem to have lost their edge when it comes to keeping the worst of the fluey side effects at bay?
