Hi guys,
I am going off of Rebif and I have been off it for about a week and a half now. I'm switching onto Tysabri because my MS was too active for the Ribif to keep up. My question is, is there a withdrawal? I've been getting headaches everyday since about 3 days after I stopped it and today I have crazy bad fatigue, worse than I've had from just the MS. Is this ...

Rebif Rebidose?

My doctor and I decided Rebif is my best option (I hate long needles, don't want to mix my shots, and can't handle possible IPIRs from Copaxone because of asthma). He prescribed me the Rebidose disposable autoinjectors. Has anyone on here tried them? What do you think?!

Common MS drugs Taken Together Do Not Reduce Relapse Risk

Common Multiple Sclerosis Drugs Taken Together Do Not Reduce Relapse Risk

A recent clinical trial found that interferonβ-1a (INF) and glatiramer acetate (GA), two of the most commonly prescribed drugs for multiple sclerosis (MS), provide no additional clinical benefit when taken together. While findings published today in Annals of Neurology, a journal of the American Neurological Association and Child Neurology Society, suggest that taking both INF and GA together was not superior to GA monotherapy ...

I have been on Rebif since Nov 24, was on copaxone for almost 13 years, and it stopped working. I really do not like the way this rebif makes me feel, it seems to really bother my eyes like the pressure in my eyes is really high, does any one else have that problem and it just makes me feel so tired and rotten
