Rebif Rebidose was evaluated in a 12-week Phase IIIb multicenter, open-label, single-arm study for the self-administration of Rebif with respect to ease of use, patient satisfaction and acceptability, and functional reliability. In the trial, patients with relapsing MS, who were receiving Rebif 44 microgram three times weekly for more than 12 weeks, continued MS therapy using Rebif Rebidose for 12 weeks.

I have never had to inject myself with anything before. Now that I am recently diagnosed with RRMS, my neurologist wants me to research Rebif and start me on it next month. Sure hope the Rebidose will make it easy on me, I HATE NEEDLES.
Diagnosed with RRMS March 2013.
Rebif May 2013 - September 2014.
Gilenya since November 2014.
