I have been on the titration pack of Rebif for just over a week (had 4 injections) after having a very bad reaction to the 44 over 3 months ago (crippling flu symptoms). It was stopped after 3 injections, and after a break we’ve now decided to start again in the titration program. I’m no beginner to DMDs - I’ve used Copaxone and Avonex in the past.
I’ve had depression for over 20 years and have managed it fairly well with with medication. I’ve had occasional suicidal thoughts and some self harm, but nothing prolonged or needing treatment. However, since I started on the Rebif this time, I am consumed particularly by a self-destructive thought pattern that is there almost 24/7. I have never experienced anything like it.
Has anyone else ever had this with Rebif? Could it just be coincidence?
Your thoughts would be much appreciated, I’m driving myself mad here. Obviously I will be speaking with my MS nurse.
