Hi from Las Vegas

:D Hi Everyone,

10 Deadliest Drugs

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.

Thanks! :(

Hi guys
