do you really need 2 paracetamol and 2 ibuprofen for the 8.8 mcg-injection? Have you tried with less until now?
I'm on Rebif for 2 years now and I unfortunately still need ibuprofen, which caused some trouble with my stomach
I do my injection in the evening, take the painkillers and go to bed.
For the first two weeks with 8.8 mcg i took 200-400 mg ibuprofen, for the two weeks 22 mcg it was 400 -600 mg ibuprofen.
The first 2 month with 44mcg I had to take 800 mg ibuprofen (+ sometimes in addition 500 mg paracetamol) in the evening and sometimes another 400 mg ibu the next morning. Then I was able to reduce to 400 mg and then to 200mg. With the new Rebif formulation I need 400 mg ibuprofen again.
Interestingly I have more flu-like side effects when i inject in my belly
Maybe because that fat is metabolic more active?
After two years with Ibuprofen my stomach problems started and i had to take a proton pump inhibitor for some weeks. Now it's better again, but I still worry about peptic ulcer and sh*t like that.
All the best,
P.S. Sorry for my english, hope it makes some sense, I'm in an hurry...
