A board to discuss the Multiple Sclerosis modifying drug Avonex

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?

I also wonder does anyone feel it relives their tiredness - or perhaps add to it..

Im getting to the stage of wondering whether it does anything for me and are the side effects worth it??

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.

Pre-filled vs. Powder

They said that focus groups revealed that some people preferred the powder form. Personally, I think the pre-filled formula is much more convenient and the injection and side effects are no different than the powder form.

I have my first shot of Avonex this coming Friday and I must admit I am a little anxious!! Is there anyone out there with some encouraging messages for me? The injection is not the scarey bit for me - it's the side effects!!

My first Avenox injection--Whole lotta shakin going on

Two hours after my first injection, I received my first reaction to the med. The shakes. People would call them the "chills", but I experience something much more dramatic, like I was an unbalanced clothes washer on the spin cycle. I also had a headache and was achy but that may have been attributed to the shakes. Has anyone else had the same experience? :?:
