Avonex sales up and hoping to see a return of Tysabri next year. The deal with Protein Design Labs is (I think) for Dacluzimab.

LDN and leg twitching

I have been on LDN 4.0 mg for almost 2 weeks and am experiencing tolerable (but noticable) leg spasms at night. I had similar symptoms prior to LDN but definitely feel the spasms have increased since starting LDN. The twitching doesn't bother me at all but I'm fearful that increased spasms are suggestive of increased disease progression.

Rebiject II issues -Need tips!

Hey all,

I have been taking Rebif a few weeks now. I prefer to use the Rebiject for the normal reasons. However, I noticed something every time I inject, and the RN's always give me conflicting answers, so I am hoping to get some help from "real" people (nothing against the nurses).

I load the syringe into the housing until it clicks. When I remove the needle cap, there is not just a drop on ...
