    How I chose Rebif and how it's working for me

    When I was diagnosed, my neurologist sent me home with information on Avonex, Rebif, and Betaseron (not sure why he didn't give me info on Copaxone), but I did my own research on all the CRABs. I wasn't ready to try less "conventional" therapies. I'm still not...

    I\'ve Tried Them All

    A Perspective from the US: I was diagnosed with MS in 1999.  Four months after diagnosis (and after another exacerbation which permanently disabled my right hand) I started with Avonex.  I used Avonex with essentially no problems - and no exacerbations - for about 3...

    Never Again Rebif

    When I was diagnosed with MS my neurologist prescribed Rebif without giving me any options or discussing alternatives.  I was on Rebif for about four months and all I wanted to do was die.  I was afraid it was the disease progressing quickly making me feel so awful.  I changed...

    I was put on Rebif 22mcg after lots of serious attacks-- which sometimes required hospital admission. The results were good for the first year, with no attacks for 16 months. But then it seemed to stop working, and I was having 4 attacks a year.  So now I've been put on...

    Rebif Gave Me Back My Life

    I had my first MS attack in 1992 and it was a really bad one. It permanently damaged my blood pressure controls but after recovering from this 'mystery' illness, nothing happened until 2000. I was living abroad in the far east and suddenly got double vision. One of the...

    I Am Sooooooooooo Tired All The Time....

    ...that I could seriously cry. It is seriously the most awful feeling to have absolutely no energy ever. To be ready for a nap within 2-3 hours of waking up..... and every 2-3 hours after that! I don't know if it's from the Rebif or if it's from the MS...or both. But it's getting...

    Man on Rebif

    I'm 36 and I've been taking Rebif for 7 years. I had 2 mild attacks that lasted about 3 months each before I was diagnosed. I've been healthy and the side effects are usually the worst I ever feel. I'm thinking of taking a break.

    Sprinting Is Fun

    I've been diagnosed with MS in 1990. 17 years later and after 3 attacks, (the most recent 3 years ago) my wife and doctor convinced me to take medication. Being an accomplished athlete, always fearing the thought of being less that my personal best, I guess I was in denial so...
