pregnancy and Avonex

Plenty of info warning women to get off Avonex if they become pregnant. Also a handy registry to register yourself if you're pregnant and on Avonex at ... tml#Avonex.

Abx Folks - Minocycline Question


My doc prescribed Mino for me last week, 100 Mg 2X/Day. He's prescribed it for it's immunomodulating properties, not its ABX properties, but at least he prescribed it.

Modern Medicine: The New World Religion ... e&n=283155
