If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Eczema with Capaxone, trying to decide on another

Postby shawniemc » Wed Jan 26, 2011 11:45 am

Reading the info on Rebif and Betaseron, I was actually disappointed to see that these were also subcutaneous as I hated the big lumps. It also seems like there's a high likelihood of the same side effect of eczema. My doctor did not suggest Avonex, but thinking I might look into this. Any experiences, opinions?

-thanks

All of them are equally worthless. I would go for the less invasive.

I did Avonex for ten years (no longer on it). The worst site reaction that I got was a small nickel to quarter sized bruise. This would only happen rarely and was probably due to nicking a small blood vessel. The IM injections may seem intimidating at first, but there are usually no site reactions (the next day I might have a little pin point red mark, but by the second day there was nothing).
