Rebif users in Canada Focus Group

My father has MS and was diagnosed in early 2000. He is now bed ridden and lives with me and my husband as he requires constant care.

This is not a scam and you ...

Rebif + Supplements

First-

If it's bad form to do this when I don't personally have MS, my bad, and I sincerely apologize.

Crazy?

Started Rebif on April 1st because Copaxone quit working for me. Neuro wanted me to give Rebif a 6-month shot. She said if I didn't tolerate it or if it didn't slow MS progression, she'd switch me to Tysabri.

The Rebif was leaking out the front through the needle without me pressing on the plunger and then all of a sudden the plunger fell out the back of the needle and the Rebif went all over my leg. Been doing this for 3 years and never had this happen. Do I call my ...
