Best Treatment for Relapsing Remitting

I am a 25 year old man from Ireland. I was diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting MS in September 2015. I have been six treatments to choose from 1) Tecfidera 2) Plegridy 3) Avonex 4) Rebif 5)Copaxone 6) Betaferon. If anybody is on any of these and has any advice or recommendations I would be delighted to hear from you :)

@phillip , the treatments that you have been offered are all "first-line" treatments. Each f the treatments involved a different routine, be it taking a regular tablet or injecting yourself at various intervals from daily upwards. So, you will need to integrate this new discipline into your life. Have a read of this as an introduction to these treatments:- http://www.mstrust.org.uk/shop/product.jsp?prodid=442 There's some more detail here :- http://www.mstrust.org.uk/shop/product.jsp?prodid=90 And there's even a webcast to watch. So, do a bit of homework and see which suits you best. :wink:


Hi @phillip I started rebif in May this year but I am going to change tecfidera in a couple of weeks. Found it a hard decision in the first place but just don't like injecting 3 times a week, the injection sites are sore and the flu like symptoms knocking me about. Just take your time go through all the symptoms and go from there everyone is different might not effect you that way. Don't rush you decision take care Vicky X x
