Avonex Cost

I'm sure that with all the great knowledge that exists in this community, someone has found a lower cost way to get Avonex. Currently I get it from the direct delivery source.

1 Year milestone

Has anyone managed to get past the 1 year milestone on avonex and if so has it made a difference to your quality of life?

Twice a week Avonex?


My doc put me on Avonex shots twice a week, and since then I go for 12+ months without any relapses. Right now I'm on 14 months without a relapse.

I was wondering if anyone else was on this kind of program and what their experience has been.
