Anyone with GOOD Experiences on Rebif??

A randomized, placebo-controlled trial called REFLEX showed that 62% and 76% of patients assigned to 44 mcg of interferon subcutaneously three times or once weekly, respectively, met 2005 McDonald criteria for MS after two years -- the study's primary ...

My experience with ReBif

First, a little about me. I am a 30year old white male, born and raised from Windsor Ontario Canada. I have never smoked cigarettes, do not drink alcohol (I could count the times I have gotten drunk on one hand). Never done drugs. I ...
