What reaction did you have that led to the conclusion that you are allergic to Rebif?
My wife was originally on Rebif and seemed to tolerate it well but during the titration process, one injection before the full dose, her neuro told her to stop because her liver enzyme levels were too high.
Some weeks later she was told that her levels had lowered enough to start the titration process again, but she had become interested in the Tovaxin IIb clinical trial at that point.
I'm admittedly not real familiar with allergies to the interferons. Rebif and Avonex are Interferon 1a, Betaseron is Interferon 1b and Copaxone is Glatimer Acetate. Possibly a genuine allergy to Interferon means that Copaxone is your only other choice within the crabs?
