I was diagnosed 6 months ago and started Rebif two months ago. The primary reason, I chose Rebif is because everything I read indicated Rebif to be the most effective treatment (my neurologist gave me all this literature and left it up to me - I mean, he was no help none what so ever) .
The literature talked about all these double blinded clinical trial studies with high statistical confidence level that show Rebif is more effective in prolonging the progression of the disease. Eventhough, REBIF may have the worst side-effects among all, I opted to be the brave.
Now, I am hoping that all that research was non-biased and I made the right decision. Only time will tell if I made the right decision and if all that literature I read was written by a REBIF pharmaceutical rep
Also, in case you are wondering about the side effects - I don't have any. An occasional fever or back ache. However, I do have a little skin reaction (tiny iching spot near injection site - truly no big deal!).
