To call or not to call...

This a typical "should I call my neurologist?" question.

Any second timers?

I posted elsewhere that my neuro wants to re-titrate me on Rebif after my liver enzymes come back down. Is there anyone else that has done this? How is it going if so? How long did it take for them to come back to normal? Any info is appreciated!!!
Thanks a bunch,

Whenever injury occurs to brain tissue inflammation occurs in response, (and "injury" can include neurodegeneration – neurons dying due to some other cause), IL – 1 is activated and appears to prolong and enhance the inflammation to the point where it becomes damaging. Inhibiting it using IL – 1 RA might be a way to minimize the damage:
