Re: Rebif and Chills
Hi, as a former Rebif user, I can assure you that iburprofin will do nothing for Rebif chills/ sweats. Try Aleve. It seems to work the best. Take one 12 hour tablet 1/2 hour before the injection, and it is safe to take another one 4 hours later, if you need to. Because it lasts so long, I never needed to take more than one tablet. IT really worked for me.
Its not unusual for you to get these side effects at this point. Youve been on it for 5 months, but this is really only the 3rd that you have taken it at full dosage. The first two months were titrated.....at this point in time, your body is becomming adjusted to having the interferon in your system...hang tough! You are problably only 4-6 weeks away from the side effects stopping completely.
Congratuations for making it this far.
