Started betaseron

I'm taking betaseron now.
Using the autoinjector.
Started with a full does (docs orders) :(
But actually have had very little in the way of side effects, just a little stiffness all over.
I was expecting to get slammed by flu symptoms, didnt happen, I've had 7 doses now.

Withdrawal symptoms?

Does anyone know what might happen if someone stops taking betaseron after having been on it for a few years? Are there any adverse reactions, such as withdrawal symptoms, or the like?

Clinical effectiveness

I've browsed many many MS sites and if nothing else, there is much research to support the use of ABC's. I've been on Betaseron since April and the side effects are all but gone. My wife is a Pharmacist of 20 years and we feel we made a well educated choice over the others available. My question to all. Although the research supports Betaseron and all the ABC'c available, from a real life standpoint........DO THEY ...

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.

Interesting. I used it and it is helpful. There must have been a slew of complaints about the packaging of the new pre-filled syringe and kit.

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!

Pre-filled injection

I took my first pre-filled injection last night.

I went slowly and read through the "manual" during the process.

In a few weeks it'll go faster as I become more familiar with the steps.

Just an update :)

Refill ordered

Okay. I put in for a re-fill yesterday. I get my meds by mail. So, hopefully, when I open the box it will be the pre-filled variety.

I'll post my results :)

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 ...
