I have been on Rebif since my diagnosis 4 years ago and haven’t had a relapse since. However I want to take a 3 month sabbatical and feel that lugging 3 months supply of DMDs will really be an inconvenience - not to mention storing and carrying sharps bins too! I have a very mild form of MS and so far when I did have relapses they were tolerable, or atleast for me. I am planning to backpack around central America for 3 months and don’t want the responsibilty of taking the medication…
My neurologist said that that taking a break isn’t impossible but obviously comes with a risk of having a relapse. She then recommended getting in touch with MerckSereno (the makers of the drug) to see what they say but they couldn’t give me any more information as its not their place which was fair enough.
Has anyone got experience of traveling with DMDs and/or taking a break? I would love to hear from you.
Look forward to hearing from you
