yep, took two tablets, but found that anything with codine in it worked best for me.

I warmed it up for an hour at room temp, then held it in my hand for the last 5minutes.

Ok, this is new, but i usually took it within 30 minutes of going to bed. anyway, it was the next day that I also felt "less than average".
Its all acedemic now, as i have taken myself off of Rebif. The side effects for me were truly unbearable. Me and rebif were not getting along, and i have actually had a relapse (admittedly, it was only 2 months after starting rebif, and I read it takes some time for it to be fully effective).
I have decided i will try all the oral options (ie statins, LDN etc) before I go back to injections (and then probably something other than Rebif).
Ironically, i am just starting to give Aimspro (goat serum via injections) a try.
