rebif is one of the disease modifying drugs (DMDs) which reduce the number of relapses and therefore reduce the risk of further disability.
there are oral DMDs (gilenya, tecfidera and aubaggio).
has your partner got an ms nurse?
he should give her a ring and ask what alternatives are available to him.
injections aren’t so bad. i was on copaxone - daily injections - for 6 years and recently switched to tecfidera.
the ms nurse should be able to talk him through his options and show him how to inject.
there are autojects for most of the injectables. i think rebif has the rebi-smart,
this means that you don’t have to handle the actual needle.
it is a personal decision but the alternative is more relapses and more disability.
think also about how it will fit his daily routine.
skin care is important because it helps the needle go in more easily.
just a simple moisturiser such as double base gel which your gp can prescribe.
good luck to you both
