The Beta Buddy

Yesterday I received a UPS package containing the "Beta Buddy".

It's a "tool" to help remove the needle cap and can serve as a "bottle opener" of sorts to take the betaseron cap off.

Bruising

I've been using Betasaron in the pre-filled kit for about a month and a half. I have bruises and big red marks all over! I talked to the beta nurse and she said try cortisone cream. This does not seem to be helping!
Anybody have any suggestions? I'm really skinny ( 94lbs. ) so it's hard to find any fatty part of my body. I use my butt alot and it's really starting to hurt!

Refill ordered

I'll post my results :)

Cheers,

Pre-filled inject practice kit

Fed-Ex just delivered my practice kit. Just before the holidays, I did get a chance to visit with my Beta Nurse and she took me through the new changes.

It will be interesting. It's mid-January now, so I'm guessing the pharmacies are now beginning to stock up on the new pre-filled materials. I have a new perscription for the Betaseron. I've been waiting a bit to get it filled so I can immediately switch over ...

Betaseron user.

I'm honored to be the first to post in the Betaseron forum.

I've been taking the med for nearly two years now. It has done very well by me. After the initial "getting used-to" period, I really haven't had any problems.

I still keep the med in the fridge, don't have to take any Tylenol or the like before or after the shot. I get the occasional bruise but no big deal.

The new pre-filled ...
