I haven’t been hanging around here lately, and never posted much when I was a regular lurker, but this seems like a sensible place to come for opinions.
I’ve been diagnosed 6 years and have been on Rebif from the start. I’ve been pretty healthy with only minor ongoing problems so I guess it’s doing it’s job but lately I’ve been finding it a real chore to do the 3 injections each week. I had an appointment with my MS nurse last week and was telling her, expecting nothing more than “Yeah, lots of people feel that way after a few years” but instead she talked about alternative DMT options.
Plegridy is the one I’m considering and I was just wondering if anyone has experience of the switch from Rebif. One of the things that’s been bothering me most is that I’ve gone back to experiencing side effects (I woke up one night shivering, which hadn’t happened for 5 years). Obviously since it’s still beta interferon I can’t expect that not to happen but would the side effects be stronger/ longer lasting since it is a greater dose being delivered each time?
