A board to discuss the Multiple Sclerosis modifying drug Rebif

Why did you choose Rebif?

i posted a similar question elsewhere with no results. therefore, i am going to post this same question in the specific drug rooms.

was it your Dr's recommendations or was it due to your own personal preference. if it was your own preference, why this one?

thank you

low white cell count

Hi, I am new to the forums and have question that maybe someone here can help me out. I have been on Rebif since September of 2010 and my first MS attack was relatively severe in May-July of 2010.

Anybody have any other autoimmune disease diagnosis while taking Rebif?

Here's my situation:
In 2003, I was diagnosed with MS, optic neuritis being the only physical symptom. Now in 2011, in addition to MS, I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, another autoimmune disease. I believe Rebif is the link.

Depression, Heightened Emotions with Rebif

I've been on Rebif for 8 months and have been experiencing pretty frequent depression and an increase in emotional outbursts. I get angrier faster, have mood swings, or just plain get more emotional than I used to before the Rebif. It's driving my hubby nuts. Sometimes I feel like the Rebif is making me lose my mind. My neuro says these things are all treatable with antidepressants, but that's the last thing I want. I'm ...
