So tomorrow is infusion #3 for me

Haven't really noticed many differences as of yet but here's hoping that good changes are around the corner

Have had several side effects after the other 2 infusions so I'm hoping this time goes a bit better. My boss doesn't seem to understand that i'm pre-emptively booking off the next 2 days as sick days.

Wish me luck!

Meegs,

I didn't really notice anything until after about #5. It's not earth shattering or anything, but you just notice that you feel the same for a while and THAT is a good thing. Hopefully it stops your progression. Good luck and hopefully it won't be much longer. My side fx are pretty mild, compared to Avonex, and all I usually get is brain fog and fatigue, but it's wierd. It seems to take a few days for that to kick in.

I had my 3rd infusion about 2 weeks ago and I felt a bit better afterwards. I drove from Cullman Al to Clarkeville Ga after the infustion so that is a plus. My first and second infusions left me with a fever and flushing that hit me bout 4-5 days after the infusiona and lasted several days.

I will have my MRI when I go back on the 22nd of June. We will see if I have progressed at all,
