Question about interactions with Rebif

Postby scoobyjude » Tue Mar 07, 2006 9:21 pm

I planned to ask my neuro today if any of the supplements I'm taking might interact with Rebif since I am going to be starting it soon. Unfortunately I only got the nurse and she couldn't get me off the phone quick enough. Right now I am taking Omega 3, Lecithin and a multivitamin plus Allegra for my sinus and allergy problems. Were you told of any supplements or other medications to avoid when taking Rebif? I plan to ask him for sure before I start but I am just curious. Was also thinking of b12 or tumeric.

I was told no more than one glass of wine at a time

And, stay away from immune stimulants such as echinacea. Everything else okay.

I have been on Rebif almost a year no problems.

Wow, kind of funny that a lot of us do or did have sinus problems long before we were diagnosed. I wonder if that is a symptom or somehow tied to a cause. There are theories out there. Thanks for the reply.

Scoobyjude, You are so right about the commonality of sinus infections. I am an MS caregiver and care advocate for my husband. There is alot of information about this on www.CPn
