:?: There is very little to no info on women that have become pregnant while taking MS meds (at least that I can find). I'm wondering if there is anyone that has and what if any problems did you have.

I was on Avonex for 7 weeks after becoming pregnant and though the baby appears to be healthy I'd like to prepare myself for the worst.

Any ...

Difficult decisions

I've been on Rebif for 11 months now and I am done. I just can't do it anymore as the side effects are just too bad. I am missing a tonne of work, and I am beyond stressed about that on top of the constant sickness. I cry some mornings because I don't want to get out of bed. :(

I have my yearly appointment with my ...
