10 Deadliest Drugs

http://health.msn.com/health-topics/articlepage.aspx?cp-documentid=100198254

Here we go again! See no. 8 listed in this article...Avonex, Betaseron and Rebif. What does this mean? That if you don't keep up with your labs that it could cause irreversable liver damage? This article doesn't really explain why it is on the 10 Deadliest Drugs list.

My question is, in general, how long does it normally take between the illness and the relapse? Does the relapse occur weeks after the illness has resolved, or within a few days? Can it happen just after the illness starts, while you are still sick?

almost a week after the last Campath infusion

well, I am not going to lie. The whole Campath experience was worse than I expected. By the fifth day, Kristin and I were just over the whole experience. In fact we were so done, that our nurse asked if we were mad at her. I eventually got the same rash as Kristin. Not as bad though. My major thing was my body was just unhappy. Bloated, poisoned, achy, rashy and mad. After we got ...
