In talking to another MSer who uses Avonex, we felt that we were very dose dependent. I feel more MSy they closer I get to the next shot. After my shot I feel better. I was just wondering if there are others who feel the same way??? I was thinking that maybe I need something at a higher dose? any thoughts on that? Also, since they don't know a whole lot about how interferons work...does anyone else believe that they are less susceptible to viral infections????
Not all weeks, but some weeks I have felt that way. Nearing my injection day I get transient sensations and such that seem to go away the day after my injectiion. I have thought about talking to my neuro about going to twice a week Avonex. I have heard in studies though it hasn't shown more effectiveness, but I'll ask his opinion on the idea when I see him on the 19th.
From what I learned about inerferons in biology courses and from my own experiences with Avonex I do believe there is an anti-viral component. I can't even remember the last time I had a cold.
