PPMS and Rebif

Post by orphansparrow » Wed Jul 20, 2016 11:34 am

Hi there,

My husband was diagnosed last week with what the neurologist believes is PPMS. But she also prescribed Rebif to him, which she wants him to inject 3x a week.

I was under the impression that Rebif is for RRMS patients. Is there a reason someone with PPMS should take it?

We go see her again in a couple days, and have decided to not start the Rebif yet. I want to make sure its the right decision.

It might be the case when there is no other alternative is suitable.

I have PPMS and was offered some of the CRAB drugs to try for effect.. I declined due to the side effects were probably worse than the benefit. Everyone is different though and has to decide for themselves.

Still looking for individual testimonials for Ocrevus (ocrelizumab)
