getting flu on Avonex?

Postby Alexandra » Sat May 15, 2010 11:29 pm

I had my forth Avonex injection on thursday evening and got the usual shivering and fever during the night, but Friday afternoon I was ok. Then during the night a whole new shivering and fever started and it kept going up till 39C. I got so weak and dizzy that ended up in the emergency room where they told me I have a serious flu and I am on antibiotics now. My question is, did you notice you are getting sick much faster then usual since on interferon?
How do yo increase only the right imunity and how can we protect from all viruses?
I live in UAE and in here we are based on AC all day which increases the possibility of getting virus.

Thank you for your answers
