thoughts on MS treatment and injections

Hi jules, I understand about not yet having the diagnosis and thinking ahead to an injectible treatment. I am someone who never thought I could give myself injections. In 2003 I decided to go on Rebif after dx. I now inject myself 3 times a week. I do not suffer from the side effects that are descri...

Timeliness and usefulness of my response?

Hi!

I'm on Rebif and have been since the summer of 2003 when I got my dx. I am always happy to share about my experiences.

I noticed that the initial posting was from quite a while ago.

Please let me know if you'd like any further information from me about my experience.

Thanks!

ciao chicca!

Ah, so the USA, in my opinion, is behind many other nations in terms of health care. Yes, we have to worry about access to the medicine that is proven to keep us free from futher disability. If we don't take the medicine, we could become "burdens" of the state. But if we can't afford the medicine, w...

I am on the net searching for information. Any links or information you have found on this topic? Thanks in ad...

RE: evidence about long term efficacy of CRABS

Hi all, Just curious. I am on Rebif and have been stable with no relapses and no new symptoms for 5 years! YAY! I have heard from some fellow people with MS who choose to go drug free that Rebif and Avonex are effective only in the first couple of years and then lose their effectiveness. I am on the...

Hi Treez and all, Happy to see a lively thread about the Swank diet here as I like the Swank diet and go often to the Swank diet website.

Hi all,

I haven't heard of cell-cept. What is that? I am on Rebif and have been for about 2 years. I am about to have the first MRI since my diagnosis two years ago.

Please fill me in about cell-cept.

I started it after an attack that I thought would lead to dx of MS. I started before the dx and before starting on Rebif. I have fo...
