Has he looked into Avonex? Personally, that would be my choice. Novantrone can only be taken for 2 years due to its cardiotoxicity. As such, it's not a long term solution. I've been on Avonex for 8 years and I typically don't get any site reaction at all (except for a small quarter sized bruise that has occured probably a half dozen times over all 8 years but then that was probably related to poor injection technique).
