    The only withdrawal symptoms I had was I had a lot more energy and felt less fatigued.There is a "800" hot-line at Avonex/Biogen you can call where they can sell you their product at a reduced price based on your income.I'm sorry I do not have that number.They probably have that number on their website.Good luck and my prayers are with you.

    You can also call MSLifelines which is the sponsor of Rebif. Rebif and Avonex are the exact same drug- REbif guarantees no more then 50$ per month for their drug....making the switch from Avonex to Rebif wont do anything to you as far as side effects, its identical drug but given 3 times a week, subcutaneously instead of into the muscle.
