Combination of Rebif and Novantrone

Hello,

I just started on Rebif yesterday. I am in my two years of getting Novantrone (IV) every three months.

When I was dxed in 2/2002, I started on Betaseron. Did that for about year. It did not seem to have any effect. Then I started Copaxone last year. Had terrible site reactions and generally did not tolerate it well.

My question is has anyone in this group is doing/have done a combo therapy with ...

not working?

I've been on rebif since april 30. I'm currently on the high dose 44. I'm handling the side effects pretty well, practically no flu like effects anymore. But it doesn't seem to be doing anything to the # of my attacks. I basically get an attack every 1 - 1.5 months. Most of them just give me numbness, with mild perm damage(fingers crossed that it stays that way). How long does Rebif take to work?, ...

Tritation

I've started taking Rebif this week, using the Rebiject II. I've been sent 4 weeks supply of 44mg syringes, but really need 22mg. The MS nurse that came to show me how to inject opened each syringe and simply squirted out half, put the needle cap back on, and put them back into the fridge.

When I did my second injection (stung a LOT more that the first one), I noticed that the needle (when ...

Getting off of Rebif??

When I was first diagnosed with MS I was getting MS attacks about once every three months. I then got onto Rebif and my attacks increased to about one every month. I've been on it since August of '04 and it seems that my MS symptoms have only gotten worse. My legs are constantly heavy and my balance is horrible. I have to get steroids often just so I can feel halfway normal, but this ...

Thyroid Issues and interferon

Just followed an interesting line of research about thyroid problems and MS--since thryoid runs in my family. I found a study that says up to 24% of the people on interferon 1-a and 1-b develop hypothyroidism within the first year of treatment. Hypothyroidism can cause hair loss.

This study suggests you get tested if you're using interferon.

Have any of you had your doc test you ...
