1. Started INF (Avonex) in November - still having horrid "flu like" side effects and waiting until an MRI in August to see if its helping more than its harming. Taking Tylenol Arthritis and injecting at night helps, but the side effects have not abated.
Have you ever tried using ibuprofen to combat the side effects from Avonex? Many people, including myself, find it to be more effective than Tylenol. I would try 400 mg at the time of your injection, or about an hour afterwards depending on when you start feeling the Avonex kick in, and then another 400 mg every 4-6 hours or so afterwards as needed. I'm usually back up to speed by the next day and don't need more than one, or two at most, doses of ibuprofen to manage the side effects. Without the ibuprofen, I get really bad cramps/spasms that can make it difficult to walk.
