Re: when the avonex wears off
Hi Knuckle...not only is it "normal" But this is the reason Rebif was brought out. So many people complained of the same thing,..
Rebif is the same exact drug, however it is given 3 times a week, sub-cu (under the skin) instead of sub-muscularly....by giving it 3 times a week, it keeps the medicine levels higher in your blood stream, thus NOT giving you that "worn off' feeling.
You might talk to your doctor about switching....because its the same interferon, more then likely you will not have any side effects from changing. I know several people who have switched and all of them did so sucessfully!
Hope this helps...
