thoughts about long-tern efficacy of Rebif?

Hi all,

I have been hearing from people I know with MS who choose not to be on a drug that Rebif and Avonex lose their efficacy with time. They are most effective the first couple of years.

I am on the net searching for information. Any links or information you have found on this topic?

Thanks in advance for your responses!

Just curious. I am on Rebif and have been stable with no relapses and no new symptoms for 5 years! YAY!

Long Term Data on Avonex, Copaxone
New results from studies that looked at long-term use of Avonex (interferon beta-1a) and Copaxone (glatiramer acetate) showed that on average both stabilized or reduced disability.

Both studies followed-up on people who had been involved in the Phase III clinical trials that led to the initial FDA approval for the drugs.

The Copaxone research looked at 100 people who had received ongoing treatment ...

Why I quit rebif

I jumped on the therapy band wagon and lasted 6 months.

I too suffered from the "flu like" symptoms.....
Head ache, nausea, cold sweats, fever, weakness, depression, stomach problems, constipation, female problems and large skin reactions (lumps, bumps and bruises).

I don't think I'm the only one who can say this interfered with my quality of life.

Okay, so it's supposed to do "good" in the long run. What about the here and now? So ...

What is Rituxan?

Can someone provide some information on Rituxan? The little I know is that it is a monclonal antibody the targets B-cells. But is it being prescribed off-label, or is it in trials?

401 keg

For Your Info:

If you had purchased $1,000.00 of Delta Air Lines stock one year ago you

With WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left.

But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling

REFUND, you would have $214.00 cash. ...

This is interesting... prescription fish oil:

What's more interesting is that they list trans fat as an inert ingredient.
Lovaza Prescribing Information wrote:LOVAZA capsules also contain the following inactive ingredients: 4 mg α -tocopherol (in a carrier of partially hydrogenated vegetable oils including soybean oil), and gelatin, glycerol, and purified water (components of the capsule shell).

What were they thinking?
