    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

    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
