    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

    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 🙂
