I started Betaseron less than a month ago. I'm up to .05 ml right now.
Take Tylenol 45 - 60 mins. before injecting. Taking Advil will eventually lead to some real stomach upset (I had this last week and had to stop taking).
Use the autoject device if you can. It makes the whole process easier.
I inject before bedtime, that way, i can sleep through any side effects. And there are some, but they WILL get better as you become accustomed to it. You may re-visit the side effects everytime you increase your dose though, but again, they will pass.
Initially, you may feel stiffness and aching when you wake up in the morning. Just take a Tylenol.
After injecting, I usually feel a little flushed and a little stiffness in my fingers, sometimes my wrist. Don't get freaked out by these things if they happen, it's to be expected.
My doctor has told me I can do anything I would normlally do and take any OTC meds (like allergy meds) that I would normally take.
