    Avonex for Multiple sclerosis

    For eight months I inject Avonex, the side effects such as head, – and body aches and chills start about two hours after injection. Two days after injection, I am weak and weak. Added to this is the feeling of pressure in the chest and heavy breathing.

    Avonex for Multiple sclerosis

    I’m type 1 diabetic and seemingly react with the blood sugar on interferon side effects. So I switched from Rebif (3x per week) to Avonex (1x per week). The symptoms are now rarer but much stronger: Vicious leg cramps. Very severe flu symptoms (up to 4 days after injection, mitigate only with sufficient acetaminophen / ibuprofen (6-10 tablets per week).) Depression, pressure on the chest and shortness of breath, headache, fatigue.

    Avonex for Multiple sclerosis

    From the first injection on I had a chest pain, was getting worse after each injection. After the 6th syringe it was so bad (heavy pressure on the chest, severe shortness of breath) that I had to go to the doctor.Evtl.a bronchospastic, have a Get emergency spray. The shivering NW I have with ibuprofen 0.5 hours before and 2 hours after the syringe well under control. What a positive aspect of Avonex is: I do not inject myself, let the doctor do it and finally feel () freed no longer need to inject themselves (Copaxone and Rebif before). Today I got the 7th syringe (7h) and have no Atemnotbeschwerden … happy …

    Avonex for Multiple sclerosis

    For me, the side effects occurred only after 4-6 hours. In the first 4 applications, I got violent chills, head and limb pain I still have (6 applications) mild fever and a feeling of sickness occurs every time … similar to a flu. Overall, the side effects have quickly receded. An ibu I take only when needed and not right at the application. The next day I feel dull and a little uncomfortable. Therefore, let the next day calm down. I highly recommend the avonex pen. Super easy application and not a big build together 🙂

    Avonex for Multiple sclerosis

    I have had MS for 3 years and every week I get Avonexx injected into my muscle. After about 3-4 hours then come the side effects. They are cruel for me, despite 3-4 x IBU 600. I just wake up again with 39 degrees Fever and try to sleep. Because of the self I get the drug, I had no boost. That’s why I’ll take it. But every week this injection turns me over. Chills, fever, strong limb jokes. This is unfortunately normal. The next day migraine often comes along and persistent back pain. I always take the syringe out of the fridge in the morning because I tolerate it a bit better at room temperature.

    Side effects: Back pain; Fever; Members hurt; Chills

    The next day migraines and bad back pain. With ibuprofen 400, the migraines are usually gone.

    Avonex for Multiple sclerosis

    the drug is injected intramuscularly once a week. (I had to defeat but first my fear of injecting). If you do not want to inject yourself, you can also have this done by the doctor. With ibuprofen, the side effects can be withstood well.

    Side effects: No side effects

    Avonex for Multiple sclerosis

    Take Avonex for a good 11 months, the usual side effects are not unknown to me. What has shown with me over time, is a better compatibility of the syringe in the evening (about 20 o’clock syringes and then possibly NW sleep on). Kalppt good. Another tip from me: splash yourself during the week and not on WE. If you work normally the next day, you will not notice the slight tinkling.

    Side effects: No side effects

    Avonex for Multiple sclerosis

    After 1.5 years at the end of February this year in the hospital was found that I have MS. The initial diagnosis was a collective name that included diagnostic options ranging from MS, Parkinson’s … to tumors. Berets after MRI with 2 contrast agents, the diagnosis was intervened in 2 ways: 5 tumors or MS. Since the centers of inflammation were in the central brain area, I’m sure everyone can imagine how I felt until the final diagnosis was made. The spinal cord function was performed Friday as the lab had already closed on Thursday. I was in my room for 4 days and prayed that it was please, please MS. On Monday evening, the ward doctor called me the diagnosis. Because from then on I was relieved and above all elated, she said I would ignore the diagnosis and repress MS. That is not how it works. For my relief, the memory of a young man was responsible 5 years before. Half the brain had to remove it because of 3 tumors in the central brain. He survived and half of the brain took over the performance of the entire brain after 6 years of training. I inject myself with Avonex since I’m out of the hospital. Side effects I feel only slightly. At the beginning I should immediately take1 whole IBU 600 after that, but I have already stopped at the second time. Since the 10th time, I’m not taking anything, even doing light weight training the next day. How good Avonex works for me, will show up next year at the MRT.

    Side effects: No side effects

    Avonex for Multiple sclerosis

    At first I had side effects in the form of flu-like symptoms. By now I can handle the Avonex quite well. I take a painkiller on Friday evening before the injection and then it’s good on Saturdays for me. Sometimes a bit tired or mild joint pain, but bearable.

    Side effects: Flu symptoms; Joint pain; Fatigue

    Avonex for Multiple sclerosis

    I have the experience that with me the side effects do not stop. The side effects here as if a big flu with strong fever logs on including body aches and chills are dependent on my on the day of the injection existing health condition. It goes so far that even 2 days later I’m not able to drive a car, because the attention and the overview are massively impaired. Even running is difficult for me then. Since it is positive but that massive restrictions do not occur after each syringe. It has even happened that was not up to a slight headache.

    Side effects: Flu symptoms

    Avonex for Multiple sclerosis

    I take ibuprofen 200 just before injecting and before sleeping, so I do not notice any of the flu-like side effects. If necessary, I take another ibuprofen the next morning. That Avonex only needs to be injected once a week is very good. In addition, there is no (hardly) skin irritation.

    Side effects: Flu symptoms
